Bihar to inaugurate rehabilitation centre for freshwater turtles:

Bihar`s Bhagalpur forest division is to inaugurate a first-of-its-kind rehabilitation centre for freshwater turtles in January 2020. 

Rehabilitation centre for freshwater turtles:

♦ The rehab centre is spread over half a hectare. It will be able to shelter 500 turtles at a time. 

♦ The aim of the state government is because several turtles were found severely wounded and sick when rescued from smuggles by rescue teams. It is expected that this centre will play a significant role in treating these animals and their proper upkeep before being returned to their natural habitat.

♦ It is necessary as the eastern Bihar has been an ideal breeding ground for turtles.
