Dhamara Community Conserved Area covers a 3 km long Bay of Bengal stretch and the forest type is a mangrove plantation with marine and creek ecosystem. The inhabitants belong to various communities who depend mainly on weaving, fishing and agriculture for their livelihoods. The plantations that are maintained have protected Bani (mangrove) forest and helped reduce salinity, safeguard the community from natural calamities such as cyclones and violent sea storms, and improve the living conditions of marine life. The CCA has an Eco-Development Committee that looks into the conservation and protection matters of the CCA. It also has a Village committee which oversees development issues in the Village.
