Inland water and freshwater biodiversity constitute a valuable natural resource in economic, cultural, aesthetic, scientific and educational terms. Yet, this precious heritage is in crisis in Majuli River Island due to the impact of increasing temperature and changes in climatic conditions. The island mainly consists of lowlands, swamps, riverine sand flats, tributaries, channels and wetlands on which the local populace is completely dependent for their daily livelihood. Protection of freshwater biodiversity is perhaps the ultimate conservation challenge for the sustainance of socio-economic conditions of the inhabitants of this island. This paper deals with the study of the importance, threats, status and conservation challenges of Majuli River Island and its population to climatic change.
