Kanpur: Ganges Under Threat

Kanpur is a city characterized by the countless tanning factories that line the sacred Ganges, pouring millions of gallons of toxic effluent into the river on a daily basis. The Expedition team interviews local environmental hero to learn more about this threat to the holiest of rivers.

Expedition: Blue Planet investigates the impact of the river’s increasing seasonality on the physical wellbeing, spiritual practice and cultural identity of the Indian people. This is more than simply an academic question. The water that flows in the rivers is the lifeblood of India, tying together her history, her people and their future.
