Search for water – India: 40 desperate monkeys drowned in wells


In India, dozens of monkeys drowned as they desperately searched for water in a well due to the extreme heat wave. About forty animals jumped in and could not get out. The forest department has conducted an inquiry and ordered an autopsy.

India has been struggling with an extreme heat wave for weeks, with temperatures rising to well above 45 degrees Celsius, especially in the north of the country. Hundreds of people have already died as a result of the extreme heat – and wildlife is also suffering. Since many lakes and other bodies of water have dried up, they look for water in villages.

In India, where the monsoon rainy season with slightly lower temperatures is expected from July, intense heat waves in summer are not uncommon. According to scientific findings, heat waves are becoming longer, stronger and more frequent due to climate change.
