Like all wilderness sports, rafting has to balance the conflict between nature protection and nature use. Because of
frequent problems in the past, some rivers now have regulations restricting or specifying the annual and daily
operating times.

Conflicts have also arisen with environmentalists when rafting operators, often in co-operation with municipalities
and tourism associations, alter the riverbed by dredging and/or blasting in order to eliminate safety risks or create
more interesting whitewater features in the river. Incongruously these measures usually are only temporary, since a
riverbed is subject to permanent changes.

On the other hand, rafting contributes to the economy of many alpine regions which in turn may contribute to the
protection of rivers from hydroelectric power generation and other development. Additionally, white water rafting trips
can promote environmentalism. By experiencing first hand the beauty of a given river, individuals who would
otherwise be indifferent to the environmental concerns of an area may gain a strong desire to protect and preserve
that area because of a positive outdoors experience.
Main article: International Scale of River Difficulty

Class 1: Very small rough areas, requires no maneuvering. (Skill Level: None)
Class 2: Some rough water, maybe some rocks, might require maneuvering.(Skill Level: Basic Paddling Skill)
Class 3: Whitewater, small waves, maybe a small drop, but no considerable danger. May require significant
maneuvering.(Skill Level: Experienced paddling skills)
Class 4: Whitewater, medium waves, maybe rocks, maybe a considerable drop, sharp maneuvers may be needed.
(Skill Level: Whitewater Experience)
Class 5: Whitewater, large waves, possibility of large rocks and hazards, possibility of a large drop, requires precise
maneuvering (Skill Level: Advanced Whitewater Experience)
Class 6: Class 6 rapids are considered to be so dangerous as to be effectively unnavigable on a reliably safe basis.
Rafters can expect to encounter substantial whitewater, huge waves, huge rocks and hazards, and/or substantial
drops that will impart severe impacts beyond the structural capacities and impact ratings of most all rafting
equipment. Traversing a Class 6 rapid has a dramatically increased likelihood of ending in serious injury or death
compared to lesser classes. (Skill Level: Successful completion of a Class 6 rapid without serious injury or death is
widely considered to be a matter of luck or extreme skill)
