The earth is only one place for mankind and all living things. Nowadays we already imbalance natural ecosystem of the world through deforestation, carbon release & different kinds of pollution. Our mandatory duty is to save our earth from future disasters for our better future. We know tree plantations and reforestation is the best way to recover natural ecosystem.
Nowadays, like other forests, Sundarban also going through deforestation. It’s such a horrible condition for us.
Many times cyclones destroyed most of the forest in the coastal area but we again start our tree plantation program and we are trying to work alongside our government.
We have no financial support but naturally we do the work with our effort and responsibilities. We took some plan for more youth involvement in this program. We have another plan for Sundarban-dependent people. The 2014 Sundarban oil spill was an oil spill that occurred on 9 December 2014 at the Shela River. After this, so many problems occured. Many kinds of fish, animals, birds and trees died and lost their natural status.
Our project is not only tree plantations, but also taking care of it and involve local people. These people are illiterate and have no sufficient knowledge about tree plantation impact. Youth (students) have a lot of interest and we use their interest and to get get them involved in our project. Our goal is “Sundarban with a natural biodiversity”.
We are happy to get feedback from people.
