Have you ever been to Sunderban, the largest mangrove of the world? Do you want to see world famous Royal Bengal tiger in action? Want to see spotted deer? Want to see the flora and fauna of the 52nd world heritage site? Just watch the following documentary.

Unfortunately, the documentary is in Bangla.

Thank you much for sharing "A Documentary on Sundarban". I would so love to watch it, but unfortunately I couldn’t play it, its taking forever to load. Would you be able to upload it on youtube.com too? That way it would be easier to watch.

There is a related video I found on youtube.com called “Sunderbans Tiger Project”:

People around the world love the Royal Bengal Tigers. We had a spanish librarian in our university and he was just crazy about them. Such was his love for bengal tiger that he always used a photo of tiger as his desktop background. Also he used to lament, especially with me saying that they are on the verge of being extinct.

PS. Are you guys having trouble watching the video? I will then try to split it and upload in Youtube.

India from 1973 took all necessary attempts to preserve foresty and tigers.
And our corrupted foresty dept did all their best to destroy our forests and tigers. Even they relocated villages to save the tigers (http://www.savethetigerfund.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Archives&TEMPLATE=/CM/ContentDisplay.cfm&CONTENTID=7022)

On the other hand foregin companies once started to explore for oil/gas in that area according to this website:
http://www.wrm.org.uy/bulletin/15/Bangladesh.html
Even if you read the report(http://www.sdnpbd.org/sdi/international_days/biodiversity/2001/Protected%20Areas%20of%20Bangladesh.htm), it is apparent that our foresty department and government are total failure to preserve our wildlife especially the tigers.

More info about tigers:
"The mangrove forest is home to 419 Royal Bengal Tigers. The Tiger population includes 121 males and 298 females. There are two male tigers against five females of the species. Besides 21 tiger cubs found in the census have not been included as they are not matured"
(http://www.bforest.gov.bd/highlights.php)

I doubt by 2007 we have 400 tigers!

What a magnificant place I recall. 7 of us (all college students - no parents) visited Hiron Point. Stayed overnight on the boat (double decker). Early morning went in the nearby canals. Saw so many spotted dear drinking water and starring at us with a baffled look. Then all of a sudden jumping around and disappearing in to the thick forrest. Just like any documentary film. the place is an "obhoi-oronno" (protected forrest area). It was end of winter. The water level wasn't that high but the tide was enough for our big'ol boat to go a little deep in the forrest. In the banks, we saw small crocs all trying to take as much sun as they could. We wanted to anchor but the authorities wouldn't let us go down. Locals had heard tiger grawls the night before and saw paw marks. City folks like us were not allowed to roam free. Didn't see any wild Tiger. :(

We did not have and handy cam back then. However, took loads of pictures. The forest was densed with roots coming out pointing towards the sky. Saw a wild bore with tusks too (Hog). Its been 20 years already!!

Actually this is not a documentary, a travel video.
