Sundarban - a basic field guide
Did you know that some fish can climb trees? How do dolphins find fish in muddy waters? Why do tigers have territories?
Although an increasingly popular destination for both local and international tourists, information on Sundarban is not widely available. Yet this fragile eco-system is threatened by the demands of a growing human population, reduction of water inflow, pollution, over-fishing and unsustainable exploitation.
Elisabeth and Rubaiyat Fahrni Mansur have been working in Sundarban as nature guides, wildlife photographers and independent researchers for many years. Together with young artists and conservationists they have created this practical field guide. Combining simple language and attractive illustrations, they explain the importance and complexity of this fragile mangrove ecosystem.
With this field guide they hope to encourage you to discover and experience this amazing mangrove habitat, and contribute to a better understanding and the conservation of our natural heritage
