Oil Spill in the Sundurbans

The Sundurbans, in India and Bangladesh, are the largest contiguous tidal mangrove forest on Earth. They support the vast Ganges delta and a wealth of wildlife. Last month, an oil spill threatened all three sanctuaries for the river dolphins of that region, as well as many other unique and already-threatened plant and animal species.
