The petition sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund is helping the last Mekong Irrawaddy dolphins living in the wild. More than 200,000 supporters responded to WWF’s call to stop the Don Sahong dam, and by doing so they are helping abused animals.
WWF is seeing results quicker than imagined: “Two weeks ago, the Laos government told dam developers they would have to go through a formal consultation process. This consultation is likely to delay construction and requires Laos to conduct further studies on the project’s environmental and social impacts and share them with key groups. Despite Laos’ decision, we cannot call it a victory. The fight is not over yet.”
Let’s hope it does help the dolphins!
