what you can do to save rivers in crisis

What we can do to save rivers in crisis?


Let them flow as they are. To restore its vitality as ever.

Then we humans do make ourselves be accustomed to the cycle of lives,we should not shut it down.

South Korean Rivers make affluent wetlands with diverse lives for humans as well as for nature itself.

Probably the same as yours.


Rivers curve along mountains and carry spectacles of lives to downstream.


They slow down the upstream when rainy season as they go downstream. And store rain along riverbasin in forms of marsh, pond, small streams and underground water. Upstream and downstream connect us all.

We could say rivers flow with mountains and mingle with the sea.
