Gangetic Dolphin had been notified as the National Aquatic Animal of India to channel attention and resources towards conserving the species.

The dolphins are an indicator species for the river ecosystem and are considered the mascot of a healthy aquatic environment.

This mammal is also said to represent the purity of the holy Ganga as it can only survive in pure and fresh water.

One of the distinguishing features of the Ganges river dolphins is their capacity to adapt to the changes that happen with the Ganges river.

Specifically, the dolphins are known to migrate into different areas of the river when flood season is occurring.
