My name is Goran Šafarek. I am biologist, author of several books and films about Croatian nature. My aim is to travel, discover, document, film world rivers.

For years, I was fervently protecting, exploring, researching and documenting the rivers in my home Croatia. I was also lucky to witness some of the finest rivers in the entire world, through my scientific expeditions. The rivers are lifelines of our planets, dynamic drivers of the biodiversity. At the same time, I saw dead rivers, by pollution, damming, regulation, dead animals and destroyed cultures.

Through time, my life goal became the protection of the river.

The aim of this project is to make people aware of both values and threats. I will do it through written stories, short films, longer film and other media. If we are not even aware what have, how can we value it, let alone protect.
