The Mekong River is a lifeline that supports 1,000 different species of fish and feeds 60 million people throughout Southeast Asia. It has more giant fish than any other river on Earth, including the endemic Mekong giant catfish. However, the Mekong is also under threat by human development and environmental changes.

National Geographic fellow Zeb Hogan is leading a a team of scientists on a new, five-year research project to investigate the well-being of this river ecosystem. Called “The Wonders of the Mekong,” the project’s goal is to raise awareness of the Mekong and help develop a sustainable future in the region.

    Thanks humans.

    Ah! This River is also home to some Old Kuomingtao groups who raise and sell heroin as well. But it is big and has good fishing. Too bad pollution is a problem

    Oblivious to cause and effect they will continue to over populate,pollute and catabolize everything they find.

    Bottom line: you can only dump so much human waste into a river before it just gives up and dies.

  • FulanaLaCubana on March 25, 2017

    Difficult to read and view simultaneously. Also, music too loud.
