Dear Mr. Goh Nan Kioh, Executive Chairman of Mega First,
I urge you to immediately suspend any further development of the Don Sahong Dam. The Mekong River is the only home of the Mekong Irrawaddy dolphin and the heart, spirit and lifeblood of the Cambodian people.
If built, the Don Sahong Dam will directly cause the extinction of this important species unique to the Mekong.
If built, the dam will have severe impacts on fisheries, potentially impoverishing more than 60 million people in Cambodia and the Lower Mekong Basin.
There are alternative approaches and technologies that support sustainable management of the Mekong River's resources and can help meet energy needs. Mega First does not need to be the company remembered for permanent and widespread damage to the Mekong River. You can choose to be a trailblazer for sustainable development and demonstrate your leadership as a responsible and forward-looking global citizen.
The Mekong River is a vital natural resource, and I am making my voice heard to protect its future from this destructive dam, for people and for wildlife.
