The Mekong River With Sue Perkins
Part 2Downloadable Video - 2014
In this documentary series, Sue Perkins uncovers a region undergoing unprecedented change. As well as tackling hard-hitting social and environmental issues, Sue explores the lighter side of life on South East Asia's largest river, flowing 3,000 miles from the high peaks of the Himalayas through the Tibetan plateau, the canyons of Chinese Yunnan, and Vietnam's vast Mekong Delta. In Part 2, she uncovers animal welfare and conservation efforts in Cambodia, including the Bunong tribe's elephant sanctuary, a wildlife rescue team raiding businesses suspected of selling poached endangered species, and fishermen switching to tourism to save the Irrawaddy dolphin while preserving their own livelihoods. Biodiversity has increased in a forested area protected by a Buddhist hermit, while the Kreung people struggle to save their land from deforestation for cash crops.
