Carcasses found in Sundarbans as damage becomes apparent after Cyclone Remal

The entire Sundarbans were flooded for about 30 hours at high tide, caused by Cyclone Remal, causing salt water to flow into ponds dug to contain fresh water for wildlife and forest dwellers.

Deer carcasses have been found while forest department offices have been damaged.

The Bay of Bengal and coastal rivers are still turbulent. As a result, forest dwellers cannot visit all areas. So, the forest department could not provide information about the damage caused by wild animals.
