Water is the staple of life on our planet. It offers sustenance that the Earth’s wildlife and environment need for survival. It also cleanses us for hygiene and is a source for people to connect with the natural world. As World Water Day approaches on March 22nd, we need to honor and appreciate this life-supporting element.
Water keeps our bodies moving and precious animals and ecosystems alive. Its vast beauty and power serve as a humbling reminder of our position in our universe. It’s also worth showing our appreciation to the committed organizations that are protecting our planet’s most valuable resource.
Here are some major conservation projects that are keeping our oceans, lakes, and rivers clean safe in the wake of a potential global water crisis:
This United Nations water-focused initiative involves working with international groups focused on their country’s water supply sanitation and preservation. These programs ensure all countries and their populated regions have sanitized, clean water for citizens and wildlife to consume safely.
This US-based organization works hard to fulfill the country’s Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Act. These policies are focused on providing citizens with sanitized drinking water that supports their health.
This organization is led by actor Matt Damon and involves small microloans that will bring safe drinking water to communities without access to it. They gather funding to help countries that can’t afford expensive water sources. Water.org will then enter these countries and build sanitation centers and establish safe drinking water systems.
This is one of the biggest North American conservation organizations focused on preserving the Earth’s resources for people’s health and environmental sustainability. It has over one million members who contribute to protecting bodies of water in the US and international countries.
This organization’s goal is to maintain natural resources for the benefit and survival of future generations.
This group helps with raising funds to support clean water projects around the world. They will offer the finances for pre-existing or new sanitation efforts so they can be properly executed. That way, people will have access to water that is safe to consume. When a project has been completed in a specific region, this group will share it through Google Maps for donors to see the difference they’ve made.
You can make an impact on keeping our world water supply clean and sustainable by supporting these organizations or reducing your non-essential water usage. Every drop matters and can help with maintaining this essential element. Make sure to tell everyone you know about world water day, so we can all celebrate it and make a difference together!
