Rema-Kalenga Wildlife Sanctuary is located at Chunarughat of Habiganj district, Bangladesh. The sanctuary is noted for its availability of rare floral species. An ethnomedicinal survey conducted among the local population residing in areas adjoining the Sanctuary area revealed the presence of three folk medicinal practitioners (FMPs) who used plants from inside and adjoining areas of the sanctuary to treat ailments. The FMPs practiced folk medicine essentially on a part-time basis and information on only ten medicinal plants distributed into ten families were obtained from them. However, these plants contained rare species with no known ethnomedicinal reports on them, at least from Bangladesh. It is expected that the plants not only will add to the list of medicinal plants in Bangladesh but also prove to be a rich source of scientific research and possible drug discovery.
