Photo by Monirul Alam @meghmonir for @everydayclimatechange ~ It's nature ever-changing by climate weather with wilderness ruled by tides and tigers. The Sundarbans, shared by Bangladesh and India in the Gangetic delta. It is home to an estimated 425 species of wildlife, including 300 species of birds and 42 species of mammals, including the Bengal Tiger. UNESCO declared Sundarban's a world heritage in 1987.
Bangladesh ranks first as the nation most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Scientists expect rising sea levels to submerge 17 percent of Bangladesh's land and displace 18 million people in the next 40 years. Bangladesh ranks fist as the nation most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Seientists expect rising sea levels to submerge 17 percent of Bangladesh’s land and displace 18 million people in the next 40 years. People become homeless and suffering shortage of food, drinking water and medicines especially children and woman suffer much more. Rising sea levels and the growing number of natural disasters forced by climate change are already driving migration and displacement. Climate Change is my long-term project where I began to document of marginal condition in my own country of Bangladesh. © Monirul Alam

Summer Sum Up

In the middle of nowhere, you get off the boat and take the canoe. Get to the entrance of a water cave, lay flat on the canoe, rocks 5-6 inches off your face while maneuvering thru the cave; get thru the other end just to see hidden mangroves. The way getting there was more exciting than the mangroves itself, honestly 😜

Flashback to Florida, out today on our blog (see main page link) is a quick "how to" on camping cheaply in Florida. If you've wanted a week on white sands, swimming with dolphins and completely relaxing, whilst avoiding paying thousands for hotels, take a look (you can do it for less than $200!). #trails #florida #vacations #cheap #holiday #trip #beach #whitesands #escape #travel #visitflorida @visitflorida #camping #hiking #dolphins #mangroves #manatee #ocean #film #video #drone #dronestagram #dronephotography #dronetravel #howlandphotography #unearthedworld

As typhoon Hato lashes southern China today, the few remaining mangrove forests in the region act as a buffer, soaking up storm surges and reducing coastal damage. Unfortunately the south of China has seen rapid development in recent decades, resulting in the clearance of the region's mangroves. This has left coastal communities vulnerable to damage from increasingly intense tropical storms. --- Mangroves lie in coastal regions and consist of trees found in salty brackish waters. They are one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on earth but often receive little attention. According to WWF, "More than 35% of the world’s mangroves are already gone. The figure is as high as 50% in countries such as India, the Philippines, and Vietnam, while in the Americas they are being cleared at a rate faster than tropical rainforests." This is because of human clearance for agriculture, development and fishing. These unique ecosystems are valued not just for their biodiversity but also for their ability to protect coastlines from rising sea levels, storm surges and for filtering pollution. Their global decline is alarming scientists across the world. #asia #china #guangdong #mangroves #climatechange #climate #environment @pulitzercenter

Mangroves feature in the wall art at Norman Park Railway Station. Fabulous work but best seen at night as the daytime colours are a bit OTT. #overthetop #mangroves #publicart #ouraustraliangardens
