The Rivers Fellowship is a program designed and run by the Australian Conservation Foundation, in partnership with the Lifeblood Alliance. 

The Lifeblood Alliance consists of environmental, Indigenous and community groups committed to keeping the rivers, wetlands and aquifers of the Murray-Darling Basin healthy for the benefit of current and future generations. Key groups of the Alliance providing support and guidance to the Rivers Fellowship include the Conservation Council of South Australia, Birdlife Australia, the Inland Rivers Network, the Murray Lower Darling Rivers Indigenous Nations (MLDRIN) and Environment Victoria.
