River dolphins are reported as endangered around the world due to the vulnerability of the riverain habitat to increasing pollution and environmental deterioration. Indus dolphin predominantly inhabits the turbid water of the Indus river. The degree of contamination, proximity to pollution source and the metabolic ability of river dolphin suggest that the species are at greater risk from the environmental contamination by the study of heavy metal. Ecological interest in the species developed in the 1970`s but approaches reducing the pollution load of the river water particularly in low flow are advocated.
