The environment, forest and climate change ministry has planned to create a sanctuary for elephants and tigers called 'Bangabandhu Conservation Corridor' in Chattogram Hill Tracts (CHT).
The forest department is carrying out a feasibility study on the project which includes making three corridors in the border areas for the Asian elephants.
The 52-km long first corridor will connect the forest in Bandarban to forest in Cox's Bazar and the second one, 65km in length, will stretch from Kaptai to Baghaichhari through Bilaichhari-Jurachhari-Barkal.
The third one will be 70km long stretching from Pablakhali Wildlife Sanctuary to Kasalong Reserve Forest, reports bdnews24.com.The ministry recently presented a report on the proposed project in a meeting of the parliamentary standing committee on environment, forest and climate change ministry. The report emphasized the discussion with concerned people in Chattogram Hill Tracts before the corridors are created to connect the reserved forests."It is better if the corridor can be created within the next one year," said Saber Hossain Chowdhury, chairman of the parliamentary panel. "The work on the conservation corridor is now in its early stage. We'll take the next step following the feasibility study," Forest Conservationist Mihir Kumar Dey told bdnews24.com.
