Rights of Nature

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

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

Second, check out our press release when we launched the program here: “Save The Colorado Launches ‘Rights of Nature’ Program To Counter Wall-Street Takeover of Colorado’s Rivers”

Third, below is a list of resources we are compiling to help incubate and accelerate the “Rights of Rivers” efforts across the Colorado River basin (and the world!)
