    The series of dams planned and already built are shocking in scale and lack of sensitivity. It will be a real shame to look back at this period in 50 years time and see the mass extinction that neoliberal capitalism is perpetuating today, with its lack of consideration of external impacts outside of economic growth targets.
    These beautiful creatures have an intrinsic right to exist, and to thrive.
