The fight for clean water is a fight for one of the most basic and essential human rights. With water resources declining in quality and quantity in virtually every part of the world, communities everywhere are looking for ways to protect this right.

Waterkeeper Alliance provides a way for communities to stand up to anyone who threatens this right—from law-breaking corporate polluters to irresponsible governments. On over 260 waterways, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, the Amazon to the Ganges, Waterkeepers are on patrol, in boats ranging in size from kayaks to research vessels.
