Some of the most diverse untouched habitats remaining in Europe are threatened by a “tsunami” of dam building which will divert and dry up swathes of previously pristine rivers. New documentary Blue Heart aims to highlight how 3,000 hydropower plants planned across the Balkans will decimate some of the last wilderness areas in Europe in a bid to hit sustainability goals. The projects will heap pressure on more than 30 species which are on the endangered species list, and many more threatened fish species. From Slovenia to Greece, the documentary follows local communities which have depended on the rivers for centuries for food, water and farming and their fight against the projects being planned.
