The Sundarbans National Park, in West Bengal , India, is a national park, tiger reserve, and biosphere reserve. It is part of the Sundarbans in the Ganges Delta and adjacent to Bangladesh’s Sundarban Reserve Area. The delta is heavily populated by mangrove forests and is one of the Bengal tiger ‘s greatest reserves. It also hosts a number of species of birds , reptiles and invertebrates, including the salt-water crocodile.
In 1973, and a wildlife sanctuary in 1977, the present Sundarban National Park was declared the core area of the Sundarban Tiger Reserve. It was designated as a national park on 4 May 1984. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site registered in 1987 and has been listed as a Ramsar site since 2019. It has been recognised since 1989 as a World Biosphere Reserve Network (Man and Biosphere Reserve).
In 1869, the first division of forest management to have jurisdiction over the Sundarbans was created. The Forest Act of 1865 (Act VIII of 1865) designated a significant portion of the mangrove forests as reserved forests in 1875. The remaining parts of the forests were declared a reserve forest the following year, and the forests that had previously been controlled by the district of civil administration were put under the jurisdiction of the Department of Forests.
In 1879, with headquarters in Khulna, Bangladesh, a forest division, which is the basic forest management and administration unit, was established. For the period 1893–1898, the first management plan was published.
