WWF and partners are working to restore a section of the Rio Grande/Bravo along the US-Mexico border. The river’s water is already 150% over-allocated and the onset of climate change has led to serious drought.
About 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water. Though it seems abundant, just 1% of world’s water is fresh (not salty) and available (not frozen). And that mighty 1% is under threat.
But we all can do something to help fresh water.
Can young people change the world? Madison Higbee and siblings Tyler, Wesley, and Nathan Newman of Canton, Georgia think so.
Businesses, governments, NGOs and civil society must come together and make tough decisions and investments that will ensure plenty of water for all.
