It is said that wars will be fought over water in this century and in some regions, conflicts over water are evident.

There is no more water today than when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth and there will be no more water when future generations need it to survive!

The available water per person and for wildlife is decreasing and it is being used and abused faster than it can be replenished or restored. What, then, should a growing population do to make sure the water that has sustained life on Earth for millions of years is available to meet the needs of current and future generations?
