The Apalachicola River and basin, its history and current condition

The Apalachicola River Ecosystem is recognized internationally by conservation organizations, the United Nations and the U.S. Congress as an extraordinary ecological system. It is also in extraordinary peril: in 2016 the conservation group American Rivers designated the Apalachicola River as the nation’s most endangered.

The ecosystem is suffering potentially irreversible damage because of the current institutional framework and unsustainable water management practices in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River System.

Climate change presents additional challenges to recovery and sustainability. Our goal is to break the political stalemate in order to alter those practices, for the betterment of the ecosystem and the people of the Apalachicola River basin who rely upon that system.
