WWF reports that the world's ten most endangered rivers are Salween (Asia), Danube (Europe), La Plata (South America), Rio Grande (North America), Ganges (Asia), Indus (Asia), Nile (Africa), Murray/Darling (Australia), Mekong (Asia), and Yangtze (Asia).

These ten rivers are quickly "dying as a result of climate change, pollution and dams." Five of the rivers are in Asia.
