Expedition Live! Follow our progress along the Mekong

The EP crew is currently in Laos researching the effects of the Don Sahong Dam on the main stem of the Mekong river. This dam has the potential to stop fish migrations up Khone Falls with potentially disastrous effects on the region’s fish populations and as a result, food supply. To see just what the impact will be, we’ve tricked out a Wave Sport Habitat kayak with sonar, GPS and 2 HD cameras. The project documentary will air on the National Geographic Channel this fall.

Check out our expedition’s progress with this up-to-the-minute location map generated by our SPOT satellite messenger.
