Will you die without water

If there was no more water on our earth, then all life would disappear. Not the smallest plant and not even bacteria could survive.
Although most of the earth's surface (70%) is covered with water, only 2.4% of the total water is fresh water, i.e. of 100 liters of water only 2.4 liters are fresh water. The rest is salt water. All living things that inhabit the land parts of our earth cannot use salt water for their survival. You can't drink it, you can't cook with it, you can't even use it to water plants.

For us humans and for all animals, clean fresh water is a valuable asset that we must use as sparingly as possible.

We use our drinking water for washing cars, cleaning floors, flushing toilets, even watering flowers in the garden and for the ornamental fish pond, although rainwater collected here would be much more suitable. Nobody thinks about the fact that every sixth person on earth does not even have clean water to drink and that 6,000 children die every day just because they had to drink unclean water.
(UNESCO 2002)

However, in order to guarantee healthy survival for the animals, we must not pollute rivers, lakes and ponds, but also meadows and forests.

For example, many insects and bugs have to die because they crawled into a discarded coke or soda can but cannot find their way out. Frogs and dragonfly larvae have to suffocate or starve to death because they are entangled in a plastic bag that someone thrown into a pond.

You will always find the greatest diversity of animals and plants in and around clean, healthy waters. The table of contents shows a section of the garden with a garden pond, in which all plants and animals presented on this website were photographed. Of course, that's only a tiny fraction of all the plants and animals that we find. If you don't carelessly pass everything in nature, you will discover much, much more.
