Global warming threatens more of the generation of Bengal tigers. The Sundarbans region, where tigers live heavily, is under the influence of global warming.
Developments in the region, in the region of the generation of Bengal tigers until 2070 means the extinction. Global warming continues to threaten the world and all living things in it. Scientists have found that the Sundarbans region between India and Bangladesh is at great risk.
The fact that the region is at risk means that the generation of many living creatures is in danger.
Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest, has a rich ecosystem. The part of the region within the Indian border has been declared as a national park and the part of Bangladesh that is on the side of Bangladesh has been taken under protection. Sundarbans have very high altitudes from the sea, and there are many rivers, islands, and swamps in the area.
Sundarbans, which is 10 thousand square kilometers wide, is seriously affected by global warming. According to scientists, the effects of global warming continue in this way, the generation of Bengal tigers will be exhausted until 2070. As mentioned before, the height of the region is only a few meters above sea level, and the 25-centimeter rise in the sea level is enough to ruin the region.
Since the early 1900s, the region has already been sufficiently threatened. The number of living things in the region continued to decrease day by day. The removal of some living things from the region had broken the food chain here. In addition to all this, illegal trade (selling of limbs, such as animals’ wings and teeth), has greatly influenced living creatures in the region.
In the studies conducted in the region, the sudden change of climate conditions has emerged as threatening the green cover of the region. Plants forming the lowest layer of the food chain are at great risk due to both changing climatic conditions and possible flooding. Decreased plants are risking the life of herbivorous creatures.
In the region, decreasing numbers of dying or trying to go to other regions. As such, tigers are included in this cycle. If the effects of global warming continue in this way, it is only a matter of time before the Tigers come to human living spaces and even attack people.
In the statements made by the authorities, a number of studies have been started to protect the region. One of these studies; walls for prevention of water erosion. The protection of these walls is a matter of debate. The authorities, who were working on the subject for a period of time, planned to transport the tigers from the region. However, this plan has been on the shelves when it was understood that this situation would not provide the difficulties and the desired benefit.
