Due to the high demand for fish in Myanmar, quite a lot of fishermen have resorted to attaching car batteries to bamboo poles and putting them into the Irrawaddy river to stun massive amounts of fish.
Not only does this knock the fish population off balance, it affects other unrelated creatures directly too, such as the dolphins that live in the area, which face death by this horrible stunning method. Despite numerous petitions and help of animal welfare groups, this still goes on. There are now approximately only 60-70 of these magnificent creatures left in our river. If we don’t act now, we might lose them forever.
I’m pretty sure doing things like this is illegal here. But even with laws, I doubt these fishermen would stop, knowing the people here. Let us all spread awareness and fight for the lives of our aquatic mammalian friends. 
Add your name here if you want this cruel fishing method and hunting of these dolphins to STOP
