Kid's Nature Magazines - Issue 43 - The Mighty Mekong

Our May edition is all about the mighty Mekong! The diversity of living creatures of this majestic river is simply staggering. Meet the world's biggest freshwater giants, a shy saola, known as an Asian unicorn, a giant softshell turtle, cheeky-looking Irrawaddy dolphins, and more! The river is also home to the world's biggest underground cave and the lost civilisation of Angkor. And yet, the mighty Mekong is under great threat. Will it survive the construction of hundreds of dams? Thousands of different species and millions of local people depend on the health of this iconic ecosystem.
