Photo by @amivitale. #Bangladesh sits on the largest delta in the world. Water shapes the land and the destinies of its people. This has always been a dynamic and relentlessly changing ecosystem but the people living here believe the changes have become more frequent, less predictable, and more violent and scientists are confirming their suspicions. It’s cutting the ground from under their feet. It’s turning farmers into reluctant fisherman. It’s pitting man against nature. Global #climatechange -- too often an abstract concept -- is an ongoing crisis for the people of Bangladesh. As extreme weather and rising sea levels literally eat away the ground beneath their feet, Bangladesh's rural poor are increasingly forced to abandon their traditional villages and move into a life of urban #poverty and degradation; the slums of the capital, Dhaka, are among the most densely populated places on the planet. Those that stay behind are pushed ever closer to the #Sundarbans mangrove forest, home to one of the largest surviving tiger populations in the world. @rippleeffectimages @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa #water #freshwater #conservation #nikonnofilter #nofilter #nikon #nikonambassador #amivitale #photojournalism #latergram #sealevelrise #globalwarmingPhoto by @amivitale. #Bangladesh sits on the largest delta in the world.
