Stolen Forests - Exhibition

Stolen Forests Photography exhibition poster

The forest landscapes of Bangladesh have dramatically changed. Outside the Sundarbans, the single largest mangrove patch on earth, the public forests have been devastated. The hills in the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) are bare today. The traditional sal forest has become history in most parts. The monoculture plantations of exotic and invasive species in place of hundreds of species of the native forests are not forests at all.

The photography exhibition Stolen Forests by Phillip Gain and Ronald Halder is about the perilous condition of our forests and what Bangladesh has lost from its unique forest patches.
