List

From the WWT to the WWF

I just had a chance to watch the documentary Watermark by Canadian filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky. This film explores people’s relationship to water and features stories and spectacular scenery from around the world. It also inspired this post: the top 3 rivers (according to us WWT) that leave their mark in cultural and environmental significance and touristic appeal. Check out the links on WWF (World WildLife Fund) for their presentation on these places.

  1. The Ganges – ‘The Holy River’, India
    WWF Ganges
  2. The Nile – ‘The Giver and Taker of Life’, Northeastern Africa
    WWF Nile
  3. The Amazon – ‘The Dangerous River‘,South America
    WWF Amazon

Any suggestions of other rivers you think should be added to the list?
