  • New Initiative of UNDP and Forest Department to save dolphins in Sundarbans
    Apr 22, 2018

    The government of Bangladesh has taken several steps to conserve dolphins, but they are still in danger. Fishermen are still using banned nets to catch fish in the designated areas and ocean-bound vessels are also using the area as a thoroughfare. Dolphins are sometimes killed by either because they are trapped in fishing nets or injured by the propellers of ships.
