Breathing Life Back Into Our Rivers

Rivers are a natural source of life- they provide water, food a means of transport, have been used as a defensive measure, are the source of hydropower, and unfortunately as a means of disposing waste.

Thus lies the importance of ensuring that we maintain and conserve our rivers for future generations.
