The river Buriganga gave rise to modern-day Dhaka city over 400 years ago, and the life of the Buriganga remains intertwined with the life of Dhaka. Saving the Buriganga is crucial to saving Dhaka. To save the Buriganga, we all have a responsibility to protect the river against ongoing degradation. To that end, I have initiated my effort to save the vital Buriganga as the first Riverkeeper. As Riverkeeper I pledge to patrol and monitor the river, collect data and publish the findings, and gather citizens to participate in this critical undertaking. Please become a part of Buriganga Riverkeeper to save the Buriganga and Dhaka. We must work together to gather information, increase awareness, and build our efforts to save the river Buriganga.
