Korea recently hosted the World Scout Jamboree at Saemangeum. It was a disaster. But what are the environmental roots of this? Just how important was Saemangeum before it was turned into reclaimed land? Hint: one of Asia’s most important ecological sites. We’re joined by Dr. Moores, one of the foremost authorities of Saemangeum to discuss how the site’s destruction impacted Korea.
