Sitting at the confluence of the Padma, Brahmaputra, and Meghna Rivers and the Bay of Bengal, the Sundarbans are the world's largest mangrove forest. A rich, remarkable river environment that covers much of the Bangladeshi coast, the Sundarbans were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 for its stunning beauty and sheer biodiversity. A maze of mudflats, islands, mangroves, and tidal waterways, the Sundarbans are home to Ganges River dolphins, saltwater crocodiles, 300 species of birds, spotted deer, snakes, and of course, the endangered Royal Bengal Tiger. Despite its fame and status as a protected area, however, the Sundarbans in recent years are threatened by rising sea levels, erosion, and human development.
