Conserving and Protecting Water

What You Can Do

Series: Green Issues in Focus

By Stephen Feinstein

But our water is endangered by pollution and global warming, and people may run short of water for drinking, irrigation, and other needs. Find out what kids can do to help save and protect this precious resource.
