2015 LIST OF TOP 10 ‘ENDANGERED RIVERS’ AND TOP 10 ‘MOST IMPROVED RIVERS’
Individuals or organizations are kindly requested to take our survey and nominate one river for the ‘TOP 10 ENDANGERED RIVERS’ list and one for the ‘TOP 10 MOST IMPROVED RIVERS’ list.
The IRF ‘TOP 10 ENDANGERED RIVERS’ list will consist of the rivers which are endangered due to damming or diversion, mining, pollution, logging, heavy development, or any other environmental or developmental threat that diminishes water quality, impedes fisheries, or negatively impacts recreational boating opportunities, or similar.
The IRF ‘TOP 10 MOST IMPROVED RIVERS’ list will consist of rivers that have been recently protected due to government decree, have had a serious threat removed or halted, have had dams or other major obstructions or diversions removed, have been cleaned up, have had active government participation in creating recreation opportunities, or any similar river improvement activities.
The survey will take only 10 min. here: Nominate rivers for 2015
Providing as much of the information listed as possible will help us make the right choice.
THE DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS IS FEBRUARY 28, 2015
The International Rafting Federation will publish its Top 10 Endangered/Improved Rivers Lists in March 2015.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and activism!
