    A forest in Bangladesh that's more than 2,000 years old is disappearing, as villagers say they have to cut down trees to survive.

    It has been reduced to less than a quarter of its original size, but now the forest department has come up with a scheme to help protect it.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Madhya Forest, Tangail.
