“I need an uninterrupted flow for oxygen and biodiversity so that I may not just survive, but thrive… and so you will too.”

The importance of Rivers

  • Part of global water system distributing fresh water
  • Nourishes entire local ecosystems (water and land)
  • Feed birds that pollinate plants and control insects
  • Provide habitat for insects, frogs, reptiles, mammals, and birds
  • River pulses trigger fish breeding and movement
  • Mitigate floods and droughts and recharge groundwater supplies
  • Essential for human societies, providing drinking water, transportation, recreation, connection with nature, and industry
  • First Nations people perceive water and land as inseparable—healthy rivers are essential to their spiritual, cultural and physical wellbeing and resilience.

The threats to Rivers

  • Over-exploitation of water
  • Fragmentation and destruction of important habitats
  • Introduced species
  • Dams, culverts and other structures affect the flow and the health
  • Litter and debris
  • Nutrient, sediment, chemical, and sewage pollution
