The Irrawaddy Dolphins

From the Internet: The Veun Nyang/Anlong Cheuteal deep pool, just downstream of Siphandone at the Laos-Cambodia border, is home to approximately 10 Irrawaddy Dolphins. In the dry season they live in the deep pool, where fish prey exists. In the wet season, the dolphins disperse from the deep pools, moving within just a few hundred meters of the proposed dam site. The Mekong’s Irrawaddy Dolphin population is endangered, and fewer than 100 individuals remain. According to WWF, the Don Sahong Dam could threaten the survival of the Veun Nyang/Anlong Cheuteal school of Irrawaddy dolphin, Laos’ only permanent dolphin population.c
