its been great reading from you. I highly commend the efforts through positive advocacy and lobbying of the International rivers. Personally I am always encouraged by your noble work. i have started a water governance institute in Uganda and I wish borrow from your leaf to save the rivers of the great lakes region in eastern Africa. Please identify for us funding organizations that can support us. You are simply the BEST.
I think its great in what you do for our waterways as water is a source of life for plants and animals and humans. We have to keep them clear and clean and every little bit helps. I could not see this planet with out the water it would be a desert with no life at all. We have to do everything in the world to keep it clean and safe. I want to thank you for all that you have done so far, and keep up the good work.
While a river near yuo may be flowing fine, rivers around the world are suffering at an alarming rate! Dams in China and Tibet, pollution and runoff in Central and South AMerican and Droughts secondayr to climate cahnge world wide. Rivers are the arteries fo the earth and when they are not flowing properly illness will occur. International Rivers is on the forefront of providign advocay, edcationa nd support concerning our world water ways. Their web page and action emails call people to act not just for themselves but for others, usually the disenfracnchised and poor. Internaitonal Rivers role will continue to increse as global warming effects the climate and the worlds energy crisis calls for more hydorecletric power. They need all the support they can get to pursue their mission of protecting these vital habits for all animal, plants, and people.
"International Rivers" is a perfect choice for a green choice awards - this group protects WATER the very essential element, in any way possible, and also environment of people living close to rivers.. I find the work of this organization very important for our lives... and also this organization is very transparent about its activities... they have my trust and biggest support!!!!
International Rivers is a fantastic organization which is focused on humanitarian environmentalism. They work directly with individuals to get their message out and inspire activism. They are working for the simple cause of human rights to water access and fighting humankind's apparent increasing desire to control nature for the benefit of few. International Rivers is a team of highly dedicated men and women working kindly and cooperatively to better our planet. What could be better?
I first learned about the International Rivers Non-profit organization through the retailer Patagonia. I shop them on line because there are no stores in San Antonio where I live. I also shop Patagonia because of their commitment to the environment. Though Patagonia's web site I got involved with International Rivers. About a year ago, I saw a link to petition to save a river. It was then that I started learning the real impact of our rivers on the environments well being. I was amazed. I started receiving regular emails about rivers around the world and how I could help. I am so proud to be part of something greater than myself as well as make a difference seemingly so easy! I am grateful for this organization, as our rivers are the life blood of our world and without their health who knows what will happen to our world.
International Rivers truly understands that the best way to effect change in a sustainable way is to support local communities and their work, thereby empowering them to make their voices heard.
Newsletter is very informative in concise bursts. It allows one to scan for important information and then dig deeply. It keeps one informed about specific issues on a selected segment of the environment without getting too deep into the weeds.
I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the International Rivers Website. I find there site very informative and educational. I learn something new everytime I am on the site. I feel that the site delivers unbiased views in their articles. When I read this site I am also learning about stories that are not covered by the mainstream media. This is a great thing. Overall I would have to recommend International Rivers To anyone who cares about the Environment.
Our state of Michigan has many beautiful rivers. As I fly fisherman I have waded in many of them, and while I enjoy the fishing, I am each time, impressed with the beauty and quiet of the peaceful places I fish. International Rivers does a great job of keeping me informed about issues related to rivers, generally speaking, but also shares information about specific rivers and problems and solutions relative to each. If we want to continue to have beautiful rivers available to us and to share with our children, we need to support fine organizations like International Rivers. Kudos to them for the great work they are doing!!!
