Stars Robert Redford and Will Ferrell have a bone to pick with each other when it comes to water. Well, not really, but they do make some good points in this funny video calling for restoration of the embattled, and thirsty, Colorado River Basin.

The celebrities are working to support Raise the River, a campaign building awareness about the Colorado. Raise the River is also working with Change the Course, of which National Geographic is a partner (with Participant Media and the Bonneville Environmental Foundation).

As Robert Redford says in the video, “The Colorado River is one of the most loved and the hardest working rivers in the world, but we’ve over used it.”
