Balkan River Defence is a group of outdoor enthusiasts, mostly kayakers, who have decided to act and do all we can to stop more than 2.700 proposed dams that would destroy last wild rivers of Europe. We are battling greed, money laundering and corruption that is fuelling these unnecessary dams, while promoting alternatives to habitat destruction. By combining science, education, creativity and adventure sports we are simultaneously supporting an ever-growing network of local river conservation organizations, grassroots NGOs and engaged individuals. We organize an annual direct action called Balkan Rivers Tour, and run the platform River Intellectuals, connecting research and river conservation.
