Heroes like you can connect rivers, fish and people!

Rivers, the lifeblood of our planet, are threatened by barriers that disrupt their flow and biodiversity. The World Fish Migration Foundation takes the lead in the Dam Removal Europe coalition, removing these barriers, restoring river ecosystems, and reconnecting fish, rivers, and communities. Your support is crucial.
  • My passion towards dam removals and free-flowing rivers arises from my love for fly fishing. I wish to make sure that our future generations will be able to enjoy free rivers and healthy fisheries.

  • ForestPeace Foundation is happy to contribute to scaling up the great Dam Removal movement. The rivers are the veins of the earth and deserve to flow freely. The more healthy, drinkable rivers, the more healthy animals and people!

  • The World Fish Migration Foundation continues to do an extraordinary job of raising awareness to the huge challenges faced by fish. The more we work together, the more opportunities we have to give fish a helping hand.

  • The work and outreach of the Foundation mixes humor and optimism with a clear-eyed view of the state of fish passage and fish migration worldwide. They deliver a very serious and timely topic in a way that leaves everyone feeling hopeful and energized about the possibility of change.
  • Working with the WFMF team is truly inspiring. These are clever, supremely creative people who apply a positive “can do" attitude to management and problem solving, big and small. A rare mix of skilled young professionals who are passionate about communicating science and the natural world. Their commitment to river restoration, and to migratory fish in particular, is exemplary and has won them international praise, awards and recognition.
  • The Nature Conservancy’s mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. At the heart of those waters are our planet’s rivers and streams, which have traditionally hosted massive annual migrations of fish that spawn, feed, and become part of our cultures and communities. For too long, these miraculous migrations have begun to blink out. We support the World Fish Migration foundation because of their unprecedented work to change that – bringing together extraordinary, devoted communities of people working to make the world a better place, one river at a time.

  • WWF is a proud donor of the World Fish Migration Foundation since the start—for over five years now! We believe in their mission and are inspired by the global difference they’re making to save migratory fish in rivers. The Foundation has united an international community of fish and river lovers to share knowledge and start acting together.

Support our mission. Each donation is key to scale up dam removal, habitat restoration, and global movements for free-flowing rivers. Let's bring life back to our rivers - one barrier at a time.
