Today, water resources are declining in
quality and quantity in virtually every part of
the world: More than a billion people are
living without access to safe drinking water;
California faces the most serious water
emergency in its history; Australia is in the
midst of an epic, 12-year-long drought-the
first industrialized nation to deal with water
scarcity on this scale.
Waterkeeper Alliance provides a way for
communities to stand up for their right to
clean water and for the wise and equitable use
of water resources, both locally and
globally. The vision of the Waterkeeper
movement is for fishable, swimmable and
drinkable waterways worldwide. Our belief
is that the best way to achieve this vision is
through the Waterkeeper method of grassroots
Waterkeeper Alliance aspires to protect every major watershed around the world. We also continue to reach out and collaborate with other leading national and international environmental and public health organizations to serve the needs of our global network.
The growth of the Waterkeeper movement is a
testament to the strength of our model.
From the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, the Amazon to the Ganges, Waterkeeper Alliance has become a powerful voice for the world's waters.
