Salween River in the News!

The Bangkok Post just published a nice video about current efforts to describe the entire list of species present in the Salween River. As there are plans to put large dams of the Salween, getting this basic, but incredibly important, information into the hands of fisheries officials will help in understanding how such development projects might affect the river's biodiversity.

The initial image shows Mr. Dee, the man on the right in the Post's photo below, who was invaluable as a guide and Karen translator during my first field season in 2013. Great to see him getting this sort of recognition for his conservation work!
