STOP THE DAMMING OF THE ARENG RIVER

The magnificent Areng Valley in Cambodia is threatened by an uneconomic Chinese dam. If it goes ahead it will wipe out endangered Siamese crocodiles and allow loggers and poachers into the 'biodiversity jewel' that is the Central Cardomom Protected Forest, the largest remaining rainforest in SE Asia.
