Restoring the Delta

Colorado River

Our work in the Colorado River Delta includes:

  • Helping negotiate Minute 319, the first international treaty to which non-governmental organizations are a party, and we are currently engaged in negotiations for a successor agreement.
  • Raising money along with our Raise the River partners to meet the NGO commitment to buy water for the environment.
  • Co-leading the binational science team that designed the pulse flow and is monitoring its hydrologic and ecological responses.
  • Documenting the pulse flow through time-lapse photography.
