Turtle cleaners

1990/04/01 Elhuyar Zientzia Iturria: Elhuyar aldizkaria

Bodies are burned in India by the Ganges River. This rite is not actual, but ancient. Therefore, for thousands of years the remains of human bodies have been deposited in the river. At this time the Ganges River is totally polluted. After analyzing several river cleaning projects, the most suitable solution has been that of carnivorous turtles.

Therefore, 7000 turtles have been placed in the river and it is estimated that until the installation of electric burners for corpses can obtain good results.
