Abstract: Cyclone ‘Yaas” devastated vast tracts of the Indian Sundarbans on 26 May 2021, breaking the vulnerable earthen dams along the river-banks and flooding the islands with salt water. The devastation amounted to an estimated Rs 15,000 crore in the state of West Bengal, according to government sources. ‘Yaas’ has also impacted the wildlife of the Sundarbans as much as it has disrupted human lives.
