The ‘Kachhua’ or Turtle Wildlife Sanctuary (TWS), the world’s only protected area dedicated to freshwater turtles, is now set to be wiped off the conservation map of India.The last detailed report on the same written by Award-winning journalist Bahar Dutt, has been published on The Wire on 24th September. 

Under the regime of the much controversial Yogi Adityanath, his misogynist and Islamophobic take on the Indian society, it inherently had to be wildlife affected next. If there is anthropogenic pressure on a sanctuary, it must not be denotified and further attempts must be taken to conserve it better. The sanctuary has been home to several rare species of turtles and fish. The decision to wipe out something as precious must not be accepted.
