Some major Polish rivers are seriously threatened by government plans, which aim to “modify river beds, drainage, dredge and construct dams, reservoirs, levees and riverside revetments along the lengths of Poland’s longest rivers” as Lukasz Lawicki and his colleagues explain in Cambridge Conservation News.
To learn more about this news, you can read the article “Cry me a river: Poland’s Threatened Waterways” which explains the situation in detail.
