This problem is more intense in highly populated countries like Bangladesh. Most of the lushness of Bangladesh has now been faded away. Human life is now endangered along with countryâ€™s wetlands, floras and faunas.
Nature conservation initiatives are must to overcome the situation.
This unique Prokriti Mela (nature fair) is being organised to build awareness and encourage people for nature conservation. n
