Humans, animals and plants cannot exist without air and water. It is well known that Earth's drinking water resources are limited, and human needs will grow more and more. In Europe, more than half of the freshwater habitats have already disappeared, resulting in the loss of hundreds of animal species forever. If the unreasonable use of water resources continues, we will soon face the real danger of their depletion. That’s why the water protection topic is very important one.
Water conservation means using less water or recycling used water so that it can be used again. Water conservation helps save energy, protect wild animals, and prevent people from using so much water that it cannot be replaced with rain.
