Canada home to vast majority of North America’s remaining longest and free-flowing rivers: new McGill University and WWF study in Nature

First ever global assessment of free-flowing rivers highlights severe degradation, offers a method for tracking the status offree-flowing rivers

This study confirms what many of us think: Canada is uniquely endowed with wild and free-flowing rivers. With this wealth of freshwater, Canada has a great responsibility to protect it. And yet, our river protection is severely lacking. It’s like we have inherited a priceless jewel and are neglecting to insure it.
