Biodiversity Under Threat

Synopsis
Resource bank of video clips, interactive maps, student activities and teachers’ notes.

Bangladesh’s Sundarban Mangroves is one of the world’s most bio-diverse areas and home to the endangered Bengal Tiger. This interactive DVD resource bank looks at why the Sundarbans 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.
