Review for OCEAN RIVER INSTITUTE INC, Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ORI continues to be the leader in attaining and maintaining water quakity in the world's oceans, rivers and estuaries. Their new campaign to help clean up the Indian River Lagoon will benefit the IRL's Bottle-nosed Dolphin as well as other marine species and the avian and terrestrial species that depend on the IRL for their survival. The nutrients and contaminants that are routinely dumped into the lagoon are contributing to the lagoons eutrophication and early demise of the lagoon and it's natural inhabitants. Programs of this nature, sadly, are needed to bring to light the lack of responsibility of manufacturers and the carelessnes of users of products that are injurious to the environment, and ORI is to be commended for their initiative in their actions to promote better water quality worldwide.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their initiative in taking action to promote a more healthful environment for both humanity and wildlife.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, knowledgeable and professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do about a quarter of the things it would like to accomplish.

Ways to make it better...

I could be more involved physically.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding and exposure to the envirnmental community . Some environmentalist I've talked to were not aware of the organization's existence.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Kudos to ORI and keep up the good work.

Review for International Rivers Network dba International Rivers, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

With the world population constantly increasing, the demand for fresh wateris at the point that the aquifers are being depleted faster than they can be recharged. It is therefore imperative that the whole world work together to keep our rivers clean and as un-polluted as possible to provide a constant fresh water source. International Rivers is getting the word out to people all over the world and their efforts to date have been commendable. Grant Campbell South Florida Audubon Society Director of Wildlife Policy Conservation and Environment Chair

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The flow of communication.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have not met with any staff members, but from the emails I have received, they seem knowledgeable, committed and resourceful

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand the organization through local chapters and develop educational programs that will provide our school children with the incentive to help protect our resources.

Ways to make it better...

There is a local chapter

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The nay-sayers that try to convince the world that there is no such thing as global warming or impending water shortages.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The advocacy should be extended to cover the pollution of our streams, lakes and oceans. The public needs to be aware of the consequences of allowing our water sourced to become contaminated.
