Waterkeeper Warriors celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Waterkeeper Alliance and showcases 20 Waterkeepers who have fought and won some of the most significant clean water battles of the past 20 years, and face the greatest challenges of the future.
As the creative producer of this project, the Waterkeeper team, Carrie O'Brien of CW&Co and I partnered with Photography Director Susan White and Culture Trip to dispatch photographers to locations around the globe to capture the spirit of these Warriors, who are at the heart of a global movement of more than 300 Waterkeeper groups to protect clean drinking water and irreplaceable water sources for nearly a billion people.
Jill Jedlicka, Exec. Dir. Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, was photographed by Mark Schafer on the Niagara River in May 2019. To see more images from this project, featured at Photoville 2019, please visit https://waterkeeper.org/warriors/
