The Water Brothers

Alex and Tyler Mifflin are the award-winning hosts and creators of the acclaimed documentary eco-adventure television series The Water Brothers.  Over the past five years, they have travelled around the globe from the highest peak in Africa to the world’s mightiest rivers, deserts, and to the bottom of the ocean, exploring some of the most important water stories of our time.  Commissioned by TV Ontario and soon to be broadcast in BC on the Knowledge Network, the series is also shown in over 40 countries, including the United States where it is now available in 47 million homes on Participant Media’s PIVOT TV.  Winners of the BBC Earth Best Newcomers award at the UK’s Wildscreen festival, known as the “Green Oscars”, the Brothers’ passion for water conservation has led them to become water ambassadors in Canada and around the world. They strongly believe in ensuring that audiences and particularly young people are aware of the challenges we face in relation to our most precious resource – and understand the true social and economic value of water and the available and emerging solutions that will help us overcome these
challenges together.
