Balkan River Defence (BRD) is a group of friends, kayakers, artists and activists working with locals throughout the Balkans to protect the last wild rivers of Europe from hydroelectric dams. Each year they hit the road, to travel the Balkans to directly support locals fighting to save their rivers. Using adventure sports, science, philosophy and peaceful defiance, BRT is exposing unsanctioned dam construction and simultaneously promoting the preservation of intact aquatic ecosystems.
