From backside postcard:
Surdanbans National Park, the largest estuarine mangrove forest in the world is a National Park, Tiger reserve, UNESCO WHS and a Biosphere Reserve located in the Sundarbans Ganges river delta bordering the Bay of Bengal in West Bengal. It is also on the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserve.

The Sundarbans as a whole encompasses 10.000km² of land and water, about 5.980km² in India and the balance in Bangladesh. The entire basin is traversed by a complex network of interconnecting waterways. This region is densely covered by mangrove forests, and is one of the largest reserves for the Bengal tiger. It is also home to a variety of birds, reptile and invertebrate species including the salt-water crocodile.
