Answer: The Sundarbans is the largest mangrove forest in the world. It has been declared the 52nd

World Heritage Site in the world. The Sundarbans is in south west part of Bangladesh in the district of greater Khulna. India shares a bit of the forest with Bangladesh. The Sundarbans is a part of the world’s largest delta formed by the rivers the Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Meghna on the Bay of Bengal. Thousands of streams, creeks, rivers, and estuaries have enhanced its charm. The total area of the forest is about 38,000 square kilometers. The name may have been derived from the Sundari trees that are found in Sundarbans in large numbers. The Sundarbans is famous for its unique ecosystem and rich wildlife habitat. It is the natural habitat of the world’s famous Royal Bengal Tiger, spotted deer, crocodiles, jungle fowl, wild boar, lizards, and many more. A migratory flock of Siberian ducks flying over thousands of sailboats loaded with timber, fuelwood, honey, shell, and fish adds to the serene natural beauty of the Sundarbans. It provides an aesthetic attraction for local and foreign tourists. Moreover, it is the single largest source of forest produce in the country. The forest provides raw material for wood based industries. In addition to traditional forest produce like timber, fuelwood, pulpwood etc., large scale harvest of non wood forest products such as thatching materials, honey, bees-wax and fish resources of the forest takes place regularly. So, its role in our national economy in no way can be ignored.
