ABOUT WATERKEEPER ALLIANCE
Waterkeeper Alliance is the fastest-growing grassroots environmental movement in the world, uniting more than 200 Waterkeepers who patrol and protect rivers, bays, lakes and streams from pollution on 6 continents across the globe, believing that every person should be able to safely swim, drink and fish in local waterways.
Waterkeeper is the global voice forcing polluters to restore waterways that have been destroyed, educating communities on how to prevent further damage, and working to ensure every person’s right to clean water.
Waterkeeper organizations are founded by local residents — a fisherman, a marine biologist, a lawyer, a homeowner — concerned about the deterioration of their waterway. Waterkeepers combine firsthand knowledge of their waterbody with an unwavering commitment to the rights of their communities and the rule of law.
