Item description for Tonle Sap: The Heart of Cambodia's Natural Heritage by Colin Poole & Eleanor Briggs...

The Tonle Sap, Cambodia's Great Lake and its yearly flood is one of Southeast Asia's natural wonders. In the dry season measuring 'only' 150 by 20 kilometres, by the peak of the wet season it has expanded to some 250 kilometres long and in places more than 100 kilometres wide, increasing in depth from 1 to more than 10 metres and in area from 2,500 to about 13,000 square kilometers. This annual phenomenon has given rise not only to the great ancient empire of Angkor, but to one of the world's most productive fisheries and the last stronghold for some of the world's most endangered large waterbirds.
Colin Poole, Director of the Asia Program for the Wildlife Conservation Society lived in Cambodia for eight years, while Eleanor Briggs has been photographing on the Tonle Sap for more than ten years. Through text and photographs together they examine all aspects of the Tonle Sap and Cambodia's fascinating and beautiful environment, its fauna, history, culture and future.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tonle Sap: The Heart of Cambodia's Natural Heritage?

Will Photos Spark Action?  Sep 6, 2007
I visited Cambodia, including Tonle Sap, last November, and was struck by the massive role of the water body in the Cambodian culture, history, and economy, AND its incredible environmental vulnerability.

This book brings this area to life in a way that should spark the kind of international commitment and action that will be required to protect it--and the livelihoods of those who live on and around it now.

I tell my kids about vehicles that can really leverage social change--the photographs of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in winter, eviscerating the argument that there's nothing there so nothing to spoil. Those that fly funders over the clear-cut areas of the northwest North American forests. This is really powerful stuff.
