Hungry and thirsty tigers are a growing threat in Sunderbans. In a tussle over land, the fiery beasts are now attacking villagers who enter their forests for crab hunting, fishing and wood. Global warming has led to an increase in the tiger-man conflict in the area. As agriculture and fishing become increasingly unviable in the islands due to natural calamities and salt water ingression, a sizeable number of farmers in the Sunderbans have become migrant labourers. For those who could not migrate, the only available options are fishing, hunting crabs and collecting honey from the dense mangrove forested area – all occupations that pose immense threat to their lives.
