New dam will drown years of recovery work

The cabinet's approval in priniciple at its April 10 meeting of the 13 billion baht Mae Wong dam construction project inside the Mae Wong National Park in Nakhon Sawan has sent shockwaves through conservation communities inside and outside Thailand....

The dam will surely destroy forest, wildlife and scenic areas long appreciated by Thailand and the international community which have supported government efforts to help forest ecosystems and endangered species recover _ especially tigers and elephants inside the park....

The entire Western Forest Complex is also Thailand's very last stronghold for many globally endangered and vulnerable species including the Asian elephant....
