Bangladesh to seek aid for mangrove forest

Date : 5th December 2007, Source : ENN



DHAKA (Reuters) - Bangladesh will seek emergency funds from the World Heritage Center to restore the ecosystem and biodiversity of the Sundarban mangrove forest, badly mauled by last month's killer cyclone, officials said on Wednesday. Cyclone Sidr, which struck the Bangladesh coast on November 15 with winds of 250 kph (155 mph) killed around 3,500 people, made millions homeless and destroyed a large part of the Sundarbans, a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the Royal Bengal Tiger.
