Why Sunderbans?

Tiger, Sunderban

Tiger, Sunderban

Sunderbans, world's largest delta covered by mangrove forest and vast saline mudflats, is situated in the lower end of the Ganjetic West Bengal. A land of some 55 tiny islands, crisscrossed by innumerable tributaries of Ganga, that was once infested by Arakanese and Portuguese pirates is now the abode of varied flora and fauna population. The only mangrove tiger land of India where 70% is under saline water makes the life of commoners, mostly honey-catchers, prawn-catchers and fishermen very difficult. This mangrove forest has about 64 plant species which alone covers 90% of Indian mangrove varieties and 60% of the total mangrove forest area of the country.

The amphibian tiger population, which is estimated to be over 260 in number here, has distinct behavioral pattern which makes Sunderbans special from the other tiger reserves of the country.The core area of Sunderbans is also conserved as 'World Heritage Site' as designated by IUCN in the year of 1989.The Royal Bengal Tiger is the king of this forest and it occupies the pinnacle of both terrestrial and aquatic web.There are also Cheetal, Wild Boar, Rhesus Macaque, Fishing Cat etc. The creeks of Sunderbans form the home of world's largest Estuarine Crocodile, the only surviving member of Jurrasic time. The aquatic fauna includes Gangetic Dolphin,River Terrapin (Batagur Baska), Olive Ridley Turtle, Green Turtle, Hawks' Turtle, different species of Crabs, Prawns, Lobsters and Fishes.

To add colours and melody there are 200 odd birds species. Some are Red Junglefowl, Lesser Whistling-duck, Northern Shoveler, Northern Pintail, Common Pochard, Streak-throated Woodpecker, Coppersmith Barbet, Brown-winged Kingfisher, Stork-billed Kingfisher, Black-capped Kingfisher, Collared Kingfisher, Pied Kingfisher, Green Bee-eater, Asian Koel, Rose-ringed Parakeet, Orange-breasted Green Pigeon, Whimbrel, Eurasian Curlew, Common Redshank, Terek Sandpiper, Common Sandpiper, Grey-headed Lapwing, Whiskered Tern, Osprey, Brahminy Kite, White-bellied Fishing Eagle, Goliath Heron, Purple Heron etc. The lost lot who did not get a chance to survive are Javan Rhino, Wild Buffalo, Swamp Deer, Barking Deer and many other important plant and animal species.

People of Sunderbans worship Tiger as "Lord of South", the richly ornamented 'Dakshin Roy' who is said to own all the wealth of the Sunderbans. 'Dakshin Roy' is believed to share his land and wealth with 'Bonobibi'. Hindus and Muslims gather at common shrine to worship both the deities. Sunderbans is open round the year for visitors.
