To achieve the greatest water conservation impact, we implement practical, low-cost, yet highly sophisticated techniques to identify, target, and remediate the most critical sources of water and habitat degradation.
River Science is a non-profit organization that operates globally through grants, donations, and conservation investments. Why a non-profit? Simply, we want to achieve the most conservation as possible. Once we successfully complete a project, we transfer all profits into our next conservation project. Ultimately, we are a perpetual machine of conservation, where our previous successes will drive future success.
There is a lot of work to do!
Together, we can achieve more. Through partnerships, collaboration, and education, we can achieve large-scale water conservation impacts. River Science collaborates with:
Universities and Researchers
We want to collaborate with local researchers on various water conservation projects because together we can achieve more.
Benefits to Researchers
- Access to our equipment, data, and pilots. Currently, the majority of our equipment is UAS (or drones) that collect water quality, aerial imagery, and topographic data.
- Access to our projects site(s) and the liberty to investigate your own conservation-related research.
- Potential funding for your research and/or graduate students. If your research can help us achieve or exceed our conservation goals, than it’s a win-win for both of us. Further, we have a lot of knowledge gained over our years of conservation, and through our collaborative process we aim to transfer our knowledge to you.
Water conservation is expensive and often requires years to launch projects. However, through grant matching, fund raising, and unique conservation investments that yield small returns, World Water can help government agencies stretch their dollars further while achieving their goals in shorter timelines.
Benefits to Government Agencies
- Access conservation projects that have historically been too expensive.
- Access our equipment, data, and pilots, and we are always looking to collaborate on our next innovation.
- Potential to collaborate on cutting-edge research, journal publications, and of course learn from our knowledgable staff and partners.
Local communities often are fully aware of their water issues, but often do not know how or where to begin. We believe in grassroots, volunteers, and helping hands. Once we start a project in your community, we will seek out the community members excited and motivated to help make a difference.
Benefits to Local Communities
- Water conservation benefits like healthy rivers, lakes, and coastlines.
- Local job creation will increase during our projects, as all projects hire locally and utilize local researchers
- We are proud of our public outreach programs that include town hall meetings and school field trips where we discuss and teach all the intricacies of the local water issues, various sources, and what individuals can do to help.
