Waterkeeper Alliance has produced a new PSA video narrated by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the organizations president, and Edward James Olmos, a long time supporter of the group.

The video premiered on CBS on Dec. 10, during the Deer Valley Celebrity Skifest and will be seen on cable channels beginning in early 2013.

Waterkeepers patrol more than 1.5 million square miles of rivers, streams and coastlines in the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa.
