Bangladesh/India | Climate change may wipe out Bengal tigers in Sundarbans PA complex

New Delhi: Climate change and rising sea levels ultimately may wipe out the Bengal tiger from the Sunderban delta, scientists have warned in a new study.

The Sunderbans, in south coastal Bangladesh, is the last surviving mangrove habitat and a key stronghold for the endangered species. Perfectly adapted to live in the mangrove ecosystem that spans across 10,000 square kilometer, the study warned that “due to the combined effect of climate change and sea-level rise, there will be no suitable Bengal tiger habitat remaining in the Sundarbans by 2070".
