Interview: Taylor Hawes - The Nature Conservancy

Taylor Hawes, Director of the Nature Conservancy's Colorado River Program

Alexandra Cousteau, explorer, filmmaker and environmental advocate discusses water use and management of the oversubscribed Colorado River with Taylor Hawes, Director of the Nature Conservancy's Colorado River Program, in this three minute film by Expedition Blue Planet. Having a healthy river is an important legacy to leave behind and for that to happen on the Colorado people must understand the river's natural cycles and truly believe that nature has a right to water too. One good place for people to start is to reconnect with where their own water comes from; it is all the same water after all.
