520 |a Conservationists have called the tiger "the guardian of biodiversity," but degradation of tiger habitats has led residents of Bangladesh's Sundarban Mangroves region to regard the animal more as dangerous predator than treasured endangered species. This program examines environmental threats to the Sundarbans and studies ways in which its human residents are learning to live with the tigers and even protect their habitats. The video also explains the functioning of this ecosystem-the largest of its kind in the world-and how a tiger conservation project, eco-tourism, and government initiates are aiding in its preservation.
