Rights of Nature for Rivers

We’re excited to launch a new “Rights of Nature” campaign for rivers across the Colorado River basin. We are working in collaboration with local and national groups — and legal scholars — on this campaign.

Check out our first success! “Rights of Nature for the Boulder Creek Watershed” in Nederland Colorado. Media stories: 1. Boulder Daily Camera, 2, KUNC radio, 3. Denver Post.

Check out our second success! “Rights of Nature for the Uncompahgre River Watershed in Ridgway, Colorado. Media stories: 1. Colorado Sun

Check out the “Universal Declaration for Rights of Rivers” here: https://www.rightsofrivers.org/
