tanguar haor

Every season paints its own beauty on Tanguar Haor. Stretching to the horizon, this wetland is full of diverse wildlife and hosts a variety of migratory birds. But this bewitchingly beautiful place needs protection too -- from poachers, felling of trees, loss of forage and biodiversity, and climatic change. With that in mind, locals have started planting trees on the embankment. Their target is to plant at least 10,000 trees this season. The photos were taken in Sunamganj’s Tahirpur upazila recently.

dust-laden dhaka road

What may look like a foggy winter morning is actually a dust-laden Dhaka road. Unplanned construction works, burning garbage at dump sites and illegal brick kilns around the capital, continue to pollute the city’s air and take a heavy toll on residents. The photo was taken from Airport Road in Uttara yesterday. Photo: Palash Khan
