There is need to have informal rescue network for marine life

GOA: There is a need to have an informal rescue network for marine life much along the lines of snake rescue squads in Goa, Puja Mitra, founder of Terra Conscious said in a webinar on Sunday. She was speaking on ‘Safer Seas: Enabling Community-based Conservation Action in Goa’ as part of the wildlife week.

“The forest department must set up guidelines for the marine ecosystem in Goa. We also require veterinary care by building CRZ compliant clinics at the beaches with tanks to keep the rescued turtles,” she said.

Mitra said that there have been 339 individual strandings recorded up to June 29 across Goa’s beaches. Of these, turtles usually wash up dead, while whale calves wash up with injuries. “We need to find out what is driving these deaths because the oceans are impacted by so many things. With climate change, Goa’s coastline is vulnerable,” she said.
