Michele Thieme Catherine Blancard

Free-flowing rivers are the arteries and veins of the Earth. The natural flows of clean, fresh water are essential for the health of entire landscapes, millions of people, and diverse wildlife—from river dolphins in the Amazon, to elephants in Africa, to tigers in Asia and beyond. But, free-flowing rivers are disappearing. In this webinar, Michele and Catherine discuss how WWF is helping to keep rivers wild and protecting the species and communities that depend on them.
