Tourism to get more eco-friendly in the Sunderbans

Tourists are to be encouraged to take better care of the Sunderban National Park in western India as part of a new eco-tourism drive.

Concerned about the effect that litter is having on the vast 4,264 sq km Unesco World Heritage Site, Sunderban Biosphere Reserve director Pradeep Vyas wants to see boat and lodge owners, non-governmental organisations and tour operators banding together to help protect the environment.

"We want to end irresponsible tourism and promote eco-tourism in the Sunderbans," he said.
