Dolphin Festival ‘Shushuk Mela 2013’

Dear Friends,

IMG_0234The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bangladesh Cetacean Diversity Project (BCDP) proudly presents the fourth ‘Shushuk Mela’ featuring the amazing diversity of dolphins and whales in Bangladesh, the threats they face, and ongoing efforts to conserve these animals. The interactive educational exhibition with life-size models, photographs, games and information panels will be convened on a traditional palm leave collection vessel. The floating exhibition will travel along the northeastern edge of the Sundarbans mangrove forest stopping at 14 villages along the way.

The Shushuk Mela 2013 aims to strengthen local constituencies for the science-based, community-informed conservation management of the three Wildlife Sanctuaries covering about 30 kilometers of critical habitat for threatened freshwater dolphins in the Eastern Sundarbans Reserved Forest. The floating exhibition serves as an information center and offers a platform for discussing proposed actions to protect threatened dolphins and whales in Bangladesh.

We hope you will assist us in spreading the word about our event and honor us with a visit. For more details please see the enclosed documents.
