Mekong river basin’s ecology affected by China’s actions


Bangkok: It’s not just humans but also animals downstream who are affected every time water is released from Chinese dams into the Mekong River.

“The survival rate of baby birds has dropped to less than 60% over the past three years, as their nests lie on the riverfront and the water level of the Mekong is so unpredictable,” lamented the administrator of a Facebook page devoted to bird lovers.
