The Sundarbans, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the largest mangrove forest in the world, spanning the southern part of Bangladesh and the eastern part of India. Its rich history and ecological significance make it a fascinating subject of study. Evidence suggests that the Sundarbans region was inhabited by early human settlers as far back as 3,000 years ago. These early inhabitants were likely part of the ancient Bengal civilization. In the 18th century, the British East India Company took control of Bengal, including the Sundarbans. The British undertook systematic logging and cleared large parts of the forest for agriculture, altering the region's ecology significantly. In the mid-20th century, both India and Bangladesh recognized the ecological importance of the Sundarbans and established protected areas. The Sundarbans were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 (Bangladesh) and 1989 (India). The Sundarbans is also home to several indigenous communities who have lived in harmony with the forest for centuries. These communities depend on the Sundarbans for their livelihoods, relying on fishing, honey collection, and small-scale agriculture.


Daniel Mackinnon Hamilton played a pivotal role in the development of the Sundarbans region during the early 20th century. His contributions were primarily focused on economic and social development, and he is remembered for his efforts to transform the area through innovative projects. In 1903, Daniel Mackinnon Hamilton acquired a large tract of land in the Sundarbans region, particularly in the areas of Gosaba and its surrounding islands. His objective was to transform these lands, which were largely underdeveloped and prone to flooding, into habitable and productive areas. Hamilton introduced several reforms aimed at improving agricultural productivity and the living conditions of the local population. He implemented measures to reclaim and cultivate the land, making it suitable for agriculture. This included building embankments to protect against flooding and salinity.


Hamilton was a strong advocate of the cooperative movement. He established cooperative societies in the Sundarbans to encourage collective farming and resource sharing among the local farmers. These cooperatives helped improve agricultural yields and provided financial stability to the farmers. Hamilton's efforts led to the significant transformation of Gosaba and its neighboring areas. The once sparsely populated and underdeveloped region became a thriving agricultural hub, providing livelihoods to thousands of people.


Hamilton's work in the Sundarbans set a precedent for future development projects in the region. His approach to land reclamation, cooperative farming, and community development served as a model for subsequent initiatives aimed at improving the socio-economic conditions of the Sundarbans' inhabitants.

The latest estimate suggest the tiger numbers in the Indian Sunderbans indicate an increase in the population of big cats.

However if you are traveling to sight the Royal Bengal Tigers in the wild then you might be in for disappointment, because tiger sightings are very rare but not impossible.
