Sunderban in News

Vivada in collaboration with WBFDC is taking special care for the fragile Ecology of the Sunderbans 

Sunderbans is a rich heritage of varied species of plants and animals. The largest delta in the world boasts about its wide area of 2500 square kilometers and the unique species residing on the area. There is a great diversity in the genres of life, which exist here. Both herbivorous and carnivorous are ruling the vast swampy delta forest. Nonetheless, the local people are proud of the great number of people flocking the delta every year. But, unfortunately the unique ecosystem is paralyzed by the environmental pollution, which is degrading the ecological beauty. 

Hence, this storehouse of ecological diversity requires special approach for the environmental pollution, which is marring the tranquil ambiance of its surrounding. The great number of small and large boats speeding on the waters is less worried about the black smoke billowing out from the exhaust pipes and sickening the fresh air. The blaring horns of the boats are also spoiling the serenity of the ambiance. 

With least attention towards the environmental factor, many big and small companies have mushroomed around the fringes of the delta. They are busy introducing boats and speed boats to reap profit from eco tourism. But, amidst the much destruction already caused to the environment, Vivada in collaboration with WBFDC (West Bengal forest Development) has introduced a string of Cruises, Speed boats, Ro Ro ferries, Water Taxis, which ensures a pollution-free ambiance. Special attention has been given towards the exhaust pipes of the water vessels, so that they have pollution checking facilities. The horns of the boats are installed with special devices to cut down the sound level.

Extra care has been taken about the rivers cutting through the delta. The water vessels of most companies are always busy dumping waste in the water and thus threatening the aqua life. But Vivada has made sure that all of its vessels are equipped with a waste treatment plant, where the waste - solid or liquid are treated, instead of dumping into the water. Each vessel has a guide and a naturalist, who will check and ensure that the waste products are not disposed in the water. Special guidelines will be furnished to the tourists, and they will be directed to behave as true eco-tourists.
