Suspend any further development of the Don Sahong dam

The newly proposed Don Sahong Dam could herald the extinction of the rare and revered Mekong Irrawaddy dolphins. Today, just 85 survive in a small stretch of the Mekong River. The sound waves from the initial explosions to clear tons of rock could potentially kill dolphins equipped with highly sensitive hearing. Later, they would have to survive increased boat traffic, changes in water quality, and habitat destruction.

The Don Sahong Dam is not just bad news for Mekong dolphins: It will have dire consequences for the food security and livelihoods of people who rely on the Mekong River's rich fisheries.

The clock is ticking. Mega First, the developers, have scheduled construction of the Don Sahong to begin later this year. So we must act now.

Sign the petition and tell Mega First that you won't let Mekong Irrawaddy dolphins be dammed.
