Adoptez une rivière

Adoptez une rivière - La Fondation Rivières 2002 - Banderole - Mobilisation
The Fondation Rivières during the Adopt a River campaign in 2002.

Adoptez une rivière was originally an operation to prevent the government from destroying 36 waterfalls to build hydroelectric power plants. In 2001, about a hundred demonstrators and sixty artists mobilized to save a large part of these falls, in addition to contributing to the emergence of ecotourism projects. The movement launched the creation of the Fondation Rivières!
