- Support. WLE Bangladesh team has a good track record in Wiki Loves Earth, with multiple photos from Bangladesh winning prizes in the international stage. Having photowalks to cover underrepresented areas and efforts towards usage of photos on-wiki are particularly appreciated — NickK (talk) 13:07, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
