About

Marañón Waterkeeper is the guardian, steward and voice of the Marañón river; A non-governmental organization whose mission is to protect and promote the Marañón River. We unite, educate and empower people to address the major issues that threaten this watershed. Right now we are working to cancel all dam concessions that exist on the river. Once this is complete we will work to put long-term protections in place for this incredible river canyon.

We believe the communities and species that rely on the Marañón River have a right to exist. We believe the Amazon is essential to life on earth as we know it, and the source of this mighty river is a critical link in this interconnected ecosystem. The protection of the Marañón River is a global issue and to address this we bring support from all corners of the globe.

Marañón Waterkeeper is a member of the WATERKEEPER® Alliance; a global network of more than 300 Waterkeeper Organizations dedicated to protecting to rivers, lakes, bays, sounds and other water bodies around the globe through grassroots action. The vision of the Waterkeeper Movement is for swimmable, drinkable, fishable waterways worldwide. The guiding principle of Waterkeepers is that without water, there can be no life, and without clean water, there can be no healthy life.
