TO PROTECT AND RESTORE
The Ridges to Riffles Indigenous Conservation Group (R2R) is an Indigenous-led conservation organization whose mission is to help Indigenous Peoples protect and restore the natural and cultural resources they rely on to maintain their identity and sovereignty.
Work Spotlight: Klamath River Restoration
The Klamath River is an extremely productive watershed with a vast range of biodiversity, both terrestrial and aquatic.
Once the third-largest producer of salmon on the West Coast, over a dozen native fish species are now
listed under the federal and/or state endangered species acts. R2R works in partnership with the Yurok Tribe on:
Basin-wide restoration projects to protect and benefit native resident and anadromous fish and improve river health.
Klamath Dam Removal by providing legal, policy, and technical assistance to the Yurok Tribe.
Clean water for river, fish, and people. Working with the Yurok Tribe to assert its federally reserved water rights.
Upholding the Klamath River's Personhood Rights.
RIDGES TO RIFFLES
Founded by Indigenous natural and cultural resource legal advocates, R2R believes that Indigenous wisdom and values have the power to heal our communities and the planet. We are building an organization that practices the values of relationships, balance, and responsibility. Our goal is to support Indigenous governments and communities by providing advocacy and policy support to advance Indigenous natural resource and conservation work.
