The Tigris River Flotilla Project
This is the second part of my conversation with Virginia Tice of Nature Iraq and the Nature Iraq Foundation and the second video in our series “Partners for Change” highlighting people and organizations making a difference in Iraq. If you haven’t already, take a few minutes to watch the first part of our conversation to learn more about these fantastic organizations.
Here we focus on the Tigris River Flotilla Project, a journey down the Tigris River from southeastern Turkey to Iraq. The trip will use traditional boats in order to bring awareness to the multitude of threats facing the Tigris and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Mesopotamia.

As Virginia explains, in addition to being the journey of a lifetime this project will also bring much needed awareness to the degradation facing the Tigris River. This project cannot happen without your help, though. Show your support for the Tigris River Flotilla Project here.
