International Rivers is the only global organization dedicated to protecting freshwater and the communities that depend on it. We work on the world’s major rivers – biodiversity hotspots that are the arteries of our planet. Over 30 years, we’ve helped protect millions of acres of riverine ecosystems and riverside forests, and prevented the resettlement of thousands of indigenous people. Your support makes these successes possible.
