Assam’s environmentalist fights religious beliefs and returns 300 ‘extinct’ turtles to the wild
Jayaditya Purkayastha, a herpetologist from Guwahati, is helping to revive the population of black softshell turtles, which are considered extinct in the wild.
The main reason behind their extinction around the world is hunting. However, in Assam, religious beliefs have limited them to temples, reported Better India.
The tradition goes back to the Ahom kings when these turtles were deeply admired and donated to the ponds. The practice still continues, people donate turtles when a child is born as it represents long life, or to mark a woman’s menstrual cycle as it symbolizes fertility, Purkayastha has been quoted as saying.
At least 29 temple ponds in Assam have turtles. These animals never returned to the wild and were not fed their natural diet. Removing the turtles from the temple grounds would hurt the religious feelings of the devotees, he added.
Purkayastha began to explain to the temple authorities about the biological needs of these turtles. He has released 300 softshell turtles to the state’s Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary so far.
