Today, water resources are declining in quality and quantity in virtually every part of the world: More than a billion people are living without access to safe drinking water.
Waterkeeper Alliance provides a way for communities to stand up for their right to clean water and for the wise and equitable use of water resources, both locally and globally. The vision of the Waterkeeper movement is for fishable, swimmable and drinkable waterways worldwide. Our belief is that the best way to achieve this vision is through the Waterkeeper method of grassroots advocacy.
Waterkeeper Alliance aspires to protect every major watershed around the world. We also continue to reach out and collaborate with other leading national and international environmental and public health organizations to serve the needs of our global network.
Waterkeeper Alliance is among the world's fastest growing environmental organizations, with nearly 200 local Waterkeepers patrolling rivers, lakes and coastal waterways on six continents.
Waterkeepers defend their communities against anyone who threatens their right to clean water. Through Waterkeeper Alliance, Waterkeepers speak with a single, powerful voice as they tackle the world's most pressing water issues. The Alliance stands behind every Waterkeeper, increasing their ability to function as community defenders in their efforts to protect the world's waterways.
We connect individual Waterkeepers to each other, and support them by providing expertise in science, law, strategic planning and communications, making them more effective in their communities' courtrooms and classrooms, and in the media. Our proudest accomplishment is the depth and breadth of our member organizations and the unity of their vision for clean water and strong communities.
