Dulahazara Safari Park was developed on an undulating landscape of around 2,224 acres (9.00 km2) of area at Chakaria Upazila in Cox's Bazar District, Bangladesh, some 107 km away from the port city, Chittagong, with an objective to create facilities for eco-tourism, research work and entertainment aside from conserving wild animals in a natural environment.
Dulahazara Safari Park is home to at least 4,000 animals of 165 species. After the new government took over in January 2007, joint forces rescued many of these new residents of the park during their drives at houses and establishments owned by graft suspects. Many individuals also donated some of the animals to the park during this period. The seized and donated animals recently sent to the park include 90 spotted deer, 42 barking deer, three sambar deer, one freshwater crocodile, onesaltwater crocodile, nine black bears, four pythons, 17 peacocks, 19 Turkish pheasants and two emus.
An other source of animals is the Dhaka Zoo. While the animal population in Dhaka zoo has increased over the years due to their breeding, the Dhaka zoo donates a number of lions and tigers to the Dulahazara Safari Park.)  => Array ( [name] => Bangabandhu Jamuna Eco Park [post_id] => 3113 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/bangabandhu-jamuna-eco-park/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Bangabandhu-Jamuna-Eco-Park-13-300x201.jpg [post_content] =>
The Bangabandhu Jamuna Eco Park in Sirajganj, which could become a lucrative spot pulling in local and foreign tourists, has been in a sorry state for years. The park, about 125 kilometres north-west of Dhaka, has over 50 varieties of timber, fruit and medicinal trees and a zoo, but fails to draw many tourists due to a lack of necessary facilities and publicity, said visitors and officials concerned.
The 600-acre park on the western end of Jamuna bridge at Soydabad in the district was opened to public in 2008, but the authorities have not taken any initiatives to attract tourists. During a recent visit, this correspondent found the park in a state of neglect, with only a handful of visitors. The park has a small zoo with only four cages that accommodate only two sick porcupines and a few monkeys and hares.
Seven spotted deer were released into the park when it was opened, and their numbers redoubled in five years. But the animals have been suffering due to a severe shortage of drinking water, with no ponds dug in the forest, sources said. Ibrahim Khalil, in-charge of the park’s wildlife and c, said there were two peacocks in the park, but they were shifted to Dhaka after they fell sick a few months ago. “Visitors, especially children, love to see animals and birds. Therefore, more of these creatures could be brought to the zoo,” Khalil said, adding the government could earn huge revenues from the park if it was taken care of.
