Dubla Island, the Sundarbans, Bangladesh

My dear friend Wanda visited Bangladesh a little over a year ago. I was cheeky and asked if she could send me some postcards, and she did. :) I've already posted one here before, but here's another. This one is actually a Unesco site as well!

The Sundarbans is a natural region in Bengal. It is the largest single block of tidal halophytic mangrove forest in the world. The Sundarbans covers approximately 10,000 square kilometres of which 60 percent is in Bangladesh with the remainder in India. The Sundarbans is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Sundarbans National Park is a National Park, Tiger Reserve, and a Biosphere Reserve located in the Sundarbans delta in the Indian state of West Bengal. Sundarbans South, East and West are three protected forests in Bangladesh. This region is densely covered by mangrove forests, and is one of the largest reserves for the Bengal tiger.
