Herding buffaloes in deep Chilika waters, East India

To the east of India, far from the swimming camels of Kutch in the west, the water buffaloes of the famed Chilika Lake boast a rich legacy. Herds of Chilika buffaloes swim across the lake waters for forage. They transfer rich nutrients to both lands and seas and continue to sustain pastoral livelihoods in the region.
