Rivers are our Earth’s arteries
They are lifelines for millions of people, animals and ecosystems –
and all of them ultimately lead to the ocean.
Our seas and oceans have no choice but to receive what rivers bring them, and in the modern world that often includes toxins, heavy metals, raw sewage, plastic waste … whatever moving water picks up on its journey.
Which is why we are celebrating these brave River Warriors who dedicate themselves to protecting, defending and recognising our precious river systems.
I am pleased to join Think About Water Artists Basia Irland, Kelsey Leonard, Meridel Rubenstein, and Stacy Levy as a River Warrior, this honor given to us by the Lewis Pugh Foundation.
