River Pearl PLUS the label for untouched Swiss waters

Let’s preserve natural rivers and streams!

Switzerland’s waters are in a perilous situation. Most streams and rivers have been straightened or canalised, or else fragmented by dams. Less than 4% are still in their natural state.

We must value and protect these last remaining untouched streams and rivers! Not only are they important habitats for native animals and plants – especially for threatened species. They are also important recreational areas for us humans.

With the River Pearl PLUS label, we recognize untouched streams and rivers, as well as the commitment of local people.
