August 27, 2015 - Don Khon (Laos).  A poster showing an Hydroelectric project is seen inside the house of a local fisherman. Experts say that the Don Sahong's dam will put at risk the ecological integrity of the Lower Mekong as a whole. In particular, it will have a severe impact on the endangered giant catfish, other fish species — some of them unique to the Mekong — and the Irrwaddy dolphin, which has found a natural habitat just two kilometers from the dam and is already critically endangered. © Thomas Cristofoletti / Ruom
