The importance of water


Water is very important for all living beings. We cannot live without water. It is a valuable gift from Mother Nature. Earth is the only planet where there is water. About 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water, but we can use only around one percent. We must protect our water resources which include rivers, streams, springs and the sea. We use water for washing, drinking, cultivation and much more. Rain is the main source that provides us with water. Therefore, forests are very important. Nowadays, water evaporation is very high and we must not pollute water. If we do not protect our water resources, Earth will one day be an empty planet.
