Water fills the seas, rivers, streams and lakes. It’s frozen in glaciers and in huge ice sheets at the Earth’s poles. It floats over our blue planet’s surface in clouds, mist and fog. It falls as rain, snow and hail. It lies hidden underground in cavernous reservoirs. It is constantly on the move.
Half of the world’s plants and animals live in water. The other half depend on it to live and grow. Without water, life as we know it would not exist at all.
WATER WORLD explores our wonderful water world and why we should never take this amazing and precious substance for granted.
