Art and Humanity: #SaveSonDoong by Thrashbird

"Caves are fragile environments. They don't regenerate very quickly, and once they are broken, they are broken... Help saving natural beauty for our children."

"Son Doong cave a natural wonder of the world, its importance is equal to that of Everest, the Grand Canyon, amazon, and many others. FLC group is planning on building a cable car in the largest known cave in the world, Son Doong. they have kept their operations and plans a secret which is against vietnamese law. Building said cable car will destroy one of the most pristine and untouched/unstudied ecosystems on the planet as well seriously harm the livelihoods of the local people. Basically, for you to know and understand, they are trying to build in a National Park in Vietnam and they/local government keep denying that they are doing anything. We have 100% proof they have been surveying and are actively planning on building a cable car and other infrastructure that will make a bunch of rich people way richer but destroy the environment and harm the local communities and take away they livelihoods of many Local Vietnamese people. I might mention it's also illegal. The relevance of taking over this particular billboard is that parts of Kong Skull Island were filmed there."


From HuffingtonPost:

The world’s largest cave, the mammoth Hong Son Doong in Vietnam, is a relative babe-in-arms when it comes to natural history: The cavern was first discovered in 1991, then lost, then found again before it was first explored in 2009. But less than a decade later, environmentalists are scrambling to save the site from thousands of tourists and a development company set on thrusting a cable car into its depths.

Located in Phong Nha-Ke Bang national park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Son Doong stretches more than 5.5 miles underground, reaches heights of 650 feet and is home to its own jungle, ecosystem and river. Just one tour company has a concession to venture into the cave, and only a few hundred people are allowed inside the fragile environment every year. But that could soon change.
