Public Private Conservation Alliance for Protected Areas Management

The Arannyak Foundation (Bangladesh Tropical Forest Conservation Foundation) established under the U.S. Tropical Forest Conservation Act of 1998 seeks to expand the scope and area coverage of its conservation efforts

Public Private Conservation Alliance for Protected Areas Management

The Nishorgo Support Project (NSP) is a USAID-funded environment project. NSP’s technical assistance prepared Arannyak to take on large-scale, protected area level co-management initiatives. Arannyak has approved a proposal by Bangladesh Forest Department, under the Ministry of Environment and Forest, to start co-management at the Inani Reserve Forest, which will be declared as a National Park soon. The 1+ million Bangladesh Scouts organize many events and activities each year, but have few outlets to direct their young members’ energy into practical conservation measures. Therefore, the Scouts volunteer and contribute to conservation in protected areas under the NSP. Banglalink, the Bangladeshi operation of Orascom Telecom, seeks to associate its brand with active, energetic and dynamic exploration of the natural wonders of the country. Association with the NSP for Protected Areas Management provides that opportunity. Therefore, Banglalink provides direct cash support for 10,000 copies of a Bangla/English book, "Protected Area Visitor's Guide", and a variety of joint marketing items for youth events (e.g. t-shirts, hats, sound systems, etc.). Recently, Banglalink, in association with commercial tour operators has launched a nationwide campaign for responsible tourism.
