World Water Day

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Wednesday, March 23, 2016/Categories: natural history, wildlife conservation, marine life, sustainability, environment

Most of what goes on at the United Nations barely leaves its New York City headquarters. That's likely what happened to World Water Day which has now come and gone and you probably never knew. Such poor communicaions is unfortunate.

Along with air and soil, water is one of the most valuable of natural resources and is being abused everywhere. From ocean pollution of every form, to toxic chemicals and metals in drinking water, and to overuse and depletion of ancient underground aquifers, water is being used as if it were an endless environmental resource.

The organization water.org is attempting to spread information on water with an educational campaign. However, time is short and it will take individual, community, and institutional attention and direct actions to increase conservation of this essential resource from the widespread abuses. Designating a speicif day by an international organization is nice but respecting and conserving water is a process requiring focus on an everyday basis.
