Rivers at risk
The Ayeyarwady River is nutrients for our fertile farms, fish for every meal, transport for our many boats and protection from rising sea levels.
But our actions are having major impacts, and the consequences could be catastrophic.
"Unsustainable fishing will wipe out a significant food source, as well as the remaining few river dolphins."
"The Ayeyarwady's fragile sediment dynamics provide food and safety for the entire country."
"We need to be focussing on more sustainable alternatives to hydropower dams."
It's not too late to protect the Ayeyarwady. Together we can find a way to balance development and safeguard the future of this vital lifeline.
“With an estimated 60 individuals remaining the Irrawaddy River Dolphin is critically endangered, but their unique relationship with fishermen could yet save the species”
“The Ayeyarwady is the engine to Myanmar’s economy and agriculture.”
"With an abundance of renewable resources available, we don't need to block the Ayeyarwady with hydropower dams"

'We need to talk about electricity'
On a dark night a young man stares at the pale glow of a light bulb and sighs. "Should I cook the rice now using firewood, or wait for the electricity," he ponders aloud. His name is Aung Kyaw Soe, one of WWF-Myanmar’s energy officers who works from our field office in Dawei. On this occasion, Aung is visiting family in a village named Sinn Inn.
