Our mission & vision
Rivers Without Borders has been striving to protect the wild intact watersheds and rich ecological and cultural values of the British Columbia-Alaska transboundary region since 1999. We engage First Nations, Tribes, commercial fishermen, scientists, environmental organizations, government, community leaders, media, and others to advance conservation for this vast, remote, and spectacular area.
The Alaska – British Columbia transboundary region ranks among North America’s top ecological hotspots. Here, six international mountains-to-sea river systems form in northwest B.C., traverse diverse interconnected eco zones, and pour across southeast Alaska’s panhandle into Pacific Ocean estuaries teeming with life.
