EFE) At least six million
fish have died in three rivers of Bolivia due to the intense cold wave
sweeping through the country in the past few weeks.

Authorities in the eastern Bolivian province of Santa Cruz declared an
alert following the death of fish in the Grande, Pirai and Ichilo rivers
that run through the tropical region.

 

This is an ‘environmental catastrophe’ brought on by the lowest
temperatures registered in Santa Cruz in nearly half a century, Gov.
Ruben Costas told reporters.

 

He said that environmental experts have found that the rivers are highly
polluted by dead fish, and he warned locals not to use those waters.

 

The cold wave that gripped the Southern Cone of South America last month
caused a severe drop in temperatures in southern and eastern Bolivia,
even falling below 0 degrees Celsius.

 

Bolivia’s weather department has forecast that the southern and eastern
parts of the country will continue to reel under the cold wave this
week.
