Ecosystem Under Threat Inle Lake in Myanmar

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 5, 2013) — Inle Lake is the second-largest freshwater lake in Myanmar and home to the Inthe people.

In 2010, extremely low water levels in the lake cut off access to the Hpaung Daw U Pagoda. That served as a wake-up call for local residents.

Part of the initiative has been the introduction of a no-fish zone in the lake.
