The Tigris River Flotilla

10. September 2013, von aus dem Netz

A great project of Nature Iraq:

Nature Iraq plans to recreate a journey down the Tigris River, starting in southeastern Turkey and travelling through Iraq, using traditional boats and vessels in order to document and bring awareness to the myriad threats facing not only the timeless waters of the Tigris but also the unique cultural heritage of Mesopotamia.

In so doing, the project seeks to connect conservation issues with daily life. By building greater awareness and networking of both the local and global community and collecting data critical to understanding the current state and threats to the Tigris, we hope to empower local communities in protecting this vital resource.
