BB Article on Mary's 3rd, and last, day in Bangladesh.

It happens today: Crown Princess Mary must keep a close eye on something special | BILLED-BLADET (billedbladet.dk)

 

In southwestern Bangladesh, the Crown Princess is together with Minister for Development Cooperation Flemming Møller Mortensen on a field visit to the area Sundarban, which is the world's largest mangrove ecosystem.

In the area, millions of people have had houses and fields destroyed due to rising sea levels and more frequent occurrence of cyclones, and Mary and the minister need to see how to protect the vulnerable ecosystem.

Later in the day, Crown Princess Mary and the Danish delegation will go on a boat trip and visit to the Danish Forest Authority in the Sundarban mangrove.

The Crown Princess will, together with the Minister, sail out into the area and get a first-hand impression of the site's biodiversity, which is seriously threatened by climate change.

What a lovely gift they presented her with!  It has been a jampacked 3 days in Bangladesh!  Wonderful and productive trip from all accounts!  I have to say this was a pleasant and unexpected surprise of a trip.
