The countries that were affected most by the Tsunami included Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, the Maldives, Somalia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Seychelles, and many others. The United Nations Environmental Programme put out a press release soon after the earthquake and subsequent tsunami, that outlines some of the environmental impacts of the natural disaster. The Tsunami washed solid and liquid waste and industrial chemicals all along many country’s shores, and sewage treatment and the salinization of drinking water definitely lacked after the disaster as well (http://www.unep.org/Documents.Multilingual/Default.asp?DocumentID=414&ArticleID=4692&l=en). Burma was particularly affected by these issues, and since its junta government did not allow much aid to enter the country, it is still unknown how many people and ecosystems were affected. Another report from the UN specifically talks about the ecosystems most affected by the Tsunami (http://www.oceansatlas.org/servlet/CDSServlet?status=ND03MTY4NyY2PWVuJjMzPSomMzc9a29z).
