Serte, les tigres des mangroves sont en danger. Mais, les mangroves, elles mêmes, sont des nourricières pour les alevins et sont le lieu où vivent des espèces uniques!

I already knew about this, but it's never too late to say it again: mangroves are, just like any other habitat on this planet, essential for ALL biodiversity... When will these people finally understand? Sometimes I'm just hopeless.

More bad news for the Tigers and all the other Wildlife living there. The people who have the power to help either don't listen, don't believe it, or don't care.

This is why we need to address the global warming issue before it's too late.If we do nothing,it's only going to get worse.

I think in that part of the region, the knowledge to conserve and protect is minute. In places like Bangledash more emphasis is placed on day to day survival without realizing the both go hand in hand.
