Boat in Marshes for blog post

Just to keep our Eden in Iraq friends updated, in spite of the conflict in Northern Iraq, our environmental design and restoration project continues

In the three months since our last productive visit to the marshes and the regional Directorate in Nasariyah, jihadist forces have entered Iraq from the Northwest and threaten control of the Northern sources of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. A new central government is almost in place. Whatever the outcome, Southern Iraq up to this point is holding its own and proceeding with business as usual. Jassim Al Asadi, Director of the Nature Iraq office in the marshes assures us that the Dhi Qar Governate is in the midst of conducting Economic Feasability and Environmental Impact studies that are necessary in order to proceed.
Our team meets regularly on skype and will be ready with a design.
