Dr. Ghulam Akbar

Sindh was once rich in biodiversity and boasted a variety of habitats, mosaic of water was known far and wide for its bodies and majestic Indus Delta. Its lagoons, marshes, coasts, plains, forests and deserts were abode for a vast variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibian and fish. These natural resources also provided livelihoods for local communities who depended largely on these God gifted resources for fish, wood, pastures, water, soil and agriculture.
