  • American Rivers American Rivers
    Saving rivers isn't a choice. It's survival. Our vision is to keep rivers healthy and free while ensuring people have the water they need. We do it by protecting wild rivers, restoring damaged rivers and conserving clean water for people and nature. Nearly everyone in our country lives within a mile of a river but few know what that river provides. Much of our drinking water comes directly from rivers, and clean water is essential to our health. Natural river habitats support thousands of plant and animal species. Our crops and cities alike depend on abundant river water for growth. For many of us, rivers offer recreation and a way to connect to nature. Our rivers are threatened by climate change, unnecessary dams, pollution, floods, and outdated policies. Perhaps the greatest threat to our rivers is simply lack of awareness of their importance to our lives. American Rivers tackles these challenges head on. Washington, DC

  • Marine Pests | Australian Government Marine Pests | Australian Government
    Marine pests threaten Australia's unique marine environment and marine industries. Over 250 introduced marine plants and animals have hitch-hiked to Australian waters on vessels of all types from yachts to commercial ships. Some have displaced our native species from their habitats, changing our coastal areas and damaging our fishing, aquaculture and tourism industries. To protect our marine environment and industries, the Australian and state/territory governments along with marine industries and marine scientists are implementing the National System for the Prevention and Management of Marine Pest Incursions. The National System aims to prevent new marine pests species arriving, guide responses when a new pest is discovered and minimise the spread and impact of pests that are already established in Australia.

    Protecting America's Ocean and Great Lakes. National marine sanctuaries conserve unique habitats that are home to millions of species, from magnificent humpback whales to colorful clownfish. Sanctuaries support our health and the economy. They are living laboratories that improve our understanding of our ocean and Great Lakes, and they protect the resting places of shipwrecks that tell the story of our shared maritime heritage. The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation is the only national non-profit whose mission is to directly support our marine and Great Lakes sanctuaries for generations to enjoy. Silver Spring, Maryland

    The National Park Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service, enriches America's national parks and programs through private support, safeguarding our heritage and inspiring generations of national park enthusiasts. Chartered by Congress in 1967, the National Park Foundation is founded on a legacy that began more than a century ago, when private citizens from all walks of life took action to establish and protect our national parks. Today, the National Park Foundation carries on that tradition as the only national charitable nonprofit whose sole mission is to directly support the National Park Service. Washington, DC
