Waterkeeper Alliance connects and supports local Waterkeeper programs to provide a voice for waterways and their communities worldwide. To champion clean water and strong communities, Waterkeeper Alliance:
1. Supports and empowers member Waterkeeper organizations to protect communities, ecosystems and water quality;
2. Promotes the Waterkeeper model for watershed protection worldwide; and
3. Advocates for issues common to Waterkeeper programs.
Each Waterkeeper program reflects the needs of the water body and community it represents. The common thread is that for each waterbody and community there is a full-time person who serves as the Waterkeeper, the public advocate for that body of water.
Waterkeepers are part investigator, scientist, lawyer, lobbyist and public relations agent. A successful advocate has a diverse bag of tools that allows her or him as the Waterkeeper to get the job done.
