The Tigris River Flotilla : an historic voyage of celebration, education, and data collection

On September 15, 2013, a flotilla of traditional Mesopotamian boats will embark down the Tigris River on an historic voyage of celebration, education, and data collection. Over the course of several weeks and over 1200 kilometers flowing from southeastern Turkey to southern Iraq, the Tigris River Flotilla will celebrate the cultural heritage of Mesopotamia, bring environmental awareness to riverside communities, and study the river's current hydrological condition.
