About us

Waterkeeper Alliance is a global environmental movement uniting more than 260 Waterkeeper organizations around the world and focusing citizen advocacy on the issues that affect our waterways, from pollution to climate change. Waterkeepers patrol more than 2 million square miles of rivers, streams and coastlines in the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa. For more information, please visit our website at www.waterkeeper.org and/or read The Riverkeepers by John Cronin and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Part scientist, teacher, and legal advocate, Waterkeepers combine firsthand knowledge of their waterways with an unwavering commitment to the rights of their communities and to the rule of law. Whether on the water, in a classroom, or in a courtroom, Waterkeepers speak for the waters they defend – with the backing of their local community and the collective strength of Waterkeeper Alliance. Waterkeeper Alliance ensures that the world’s Waterkeepers are as connected to each other as they are to their local waters, organizing the fight for clean water into a coordinated global movement.
