The orchard originally covered 27 acres but had shrunk to 17 acres by the time it was acquired.

CURRENT THREATS TO CKBS

Road extension threat to bird havenThe forest department has raised serious objections to the Kamalgazi-Baruipur extension of the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass along either side of the Adi Ganga, as it would transgress a portion of the ecologically sensitive Chintamoni Kar sanctuary, better known as Koyaler Bagan, in Narendrapur. The 19-km road, which will take a lot of pressure off Netaji Subhas Bose Road, is likely to take away a part of the land stretching from daag 2140 to daag 2903. Our apprehension is that a lot of very old trees, which have been home to numerous migratory and indigenous birds, may be felled. The ecological loss will be irreparable in such circumstances. The sanctuary is situated at the very critical juncture of the land to be utilised for a twolane high-speed corridor. It is only 2.5 km away from Kamalgazi. The road for Baruipur-bound vehicles from Kamalgazi will require this land. The road for Garia-bound vehicles on the other bank of Adi Ganga faces no such problem. The work is progressing at a very high speed and the axe on the forest can come down any day. Besides felling of trees, the boundary fencing has to be relocated. .
