The Mekong River is a lifeline for millions of people and home to the Mekong population of Irrawaddy dolphins. Now the dolphins face a new threat: neighboring Laos is planning to build a huge dam - with serious consequences for the environment.
Only 80 Mekong River dolphins remain. Conservation efforts are underway in Cambodia but these unique animals are facing a new threat from a mega dam in neighboring Laos.
Spanning an area of a million acres, the richly biodiverse Central Cardamom Protected Forest in southwest Cambodia faces all manner of conservation threats. Including the country's economic future.
