Description

Bangladesh's Sundarban Mangroves are one of the world's most bio-diverse areas and home to the endangered Bengal Tiger. This high-quality DVD resource looks at why the Sundarban eco-system is so important as a bio-diversity hotspot, as a carbon bank and as protection against the impacts of tropical cyclones. It examines the threats, including climate change, shrimp farming, poaching and tiger killings. It then explores how they can be sustainably managed and by whom. Case studies include; a tiger conservation project, eco-tourism, and government initiatives to control resource exploitation. This is an engaging and comprehensive resource with remarkable access to a unique environment.
