After Dead in the Water
Following publication and presentations on Dead in the Water in 2018, co-editors Shoemaker and Robichaud have continued to engage in issues surrounding conservation, human rights and hydropower.
William Robichaud has helped found the new Saola Foundation aimed at furthering efforts to save the critically endangered Saola in the Annamite Mountains of Laos and Vietnam.
Bruce Shoemaker has been focusing on the international implications, for the Mekong region and elsewhere, of the largest proposed dam removal project in the world, located right in his home region of far-northern California on the Klamath River. This has included publishing the following articles:
