Kolkata: State Forest minister Rajib Banerjee visited Bulbul-affected areas of Jharkhali in Sunderbans on Wednesday.
Banerjee was accompanied by senior officials of the department and oversaw the restoration work.
The department has proposed to increase the mangrove cover.
Environmentalists had said the mangrove cover of the Sunderbans had acted as a shield against the cyclone, against cyclonic storm Bulbul that had hit the state on November 9.
It was found that the areas located in close proximity to the mangrove cover witnessed lesser devastation.
