Starting in the wilderness of the Adirondack mountains and joining the Atlantic Ocean at New York City, The Hudson / Muhheakantuck is a mighty river. Here is some of its story 🏞️💧 #HudsonSwim2023
🌍 The Hudson River Valley was originally inhabited by Native American tribes whose culture is deeply rooted in respect for the environment. Their wisdom and guidance remain crucial in restoring and preserving this rich ecosystem.
🌆 20 million people live in its river basin, with 8 million in NYC itself. They rely on the river for sustenance, drinking water, recreation, transport, trade, tourism and more.
🐻 Fish, bears, bobcats, golden eagles, turtles and thousands of other species need this river to survive, and yet the majority are threatened by human behaviour, Climate Crisis impacts, water scarcity, pollution and dams. A healthy river benefits ALL its residents.
