Ecological Importance and threats:
The river is the lifeline of the vast Indian plains. The entire ecosystem of this land which stretches from Uttar Pradesh to West Bengal is dependant on the river. Many important species including the severely endangered Gangetic porpoise are found in the waters of the river. The forests surviving along the banks or fed by the channels and distribu taries of the river are crucial for wildlife in north India. Unfortunately, in cities like Varanasi, Ganga is tortured by constant pollution. The river is also under threat form the fast melting glaciers as a result of global warming.
