What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Pearl Riverkeeper is a licensed member of Waterkeeper Alliance, the largest and fastest growing nonprofit solely focused on clean water. Pearl Riverkeeper will advocate for the health of the Pearl River Basin which covers 24 counties in Central and Southern Mississippi, 2 Louisiana parishes and includes the Yockanookany, Strong and Bogue Chitto River tributaries. This ecosystem is rich in ecological resources including 40 species of mussel and 130 species of native fish. It supports eight federally listed species including the ringed map turtle, Gulf sturgeon, inflated heelsplitter mussel, bald eagle, dusky gopher frog, gopher tortoise, Pearl darter and Louisiana black bear. This watershed provides the drinking water for much of the state of Mississippi and also provides numerous recreational and tourism opportunities, a significant revenue source for the surrounding counties. The marshes and estuaries on the Gulf Coast rely on the Pearl River as a source of clean, fresh water.
