Since childhood we are studying that about 70% of our earth’s surface is covered by water and water is the most precious gift of nature. But, how many of you actually know that we ‘human beings’ are only responsible for exploiting this natural resource to such an extent that now, it has become impossible to control water pollution. The misuse of this valuable resource has become a threat to human life as well as aquatic life as displayed in heartbreaking images of water pollution.
Friends! Isn’t it fun to swim in water with your kids when they are small? Isn’t it such a romantic scene, suppose you are on a yacht with your beloved and watching together how the sun sets? It’s so adventurous to go for a dive inside water and see what’s deep in the water? But, the reality is totally different! Yes, you won’t believe about two-third of the world’s water body is already endangered. It’s sad that we have forgotten how important sea creatures are and all water body in general.
Heart Breaking Images Of Water Pollution
Let’s find out the answers to these questions such as – who throw thick sewage waste and plastic materials in water? Who are responsible for making crystal clear, blue water look like pale blue that we don’t even prefer to see it?
Harmful results one must understand –
Sea Animals are facing Difficulty while Breathing!
We must feel ashamed! We are treating oceans, rivers, and lakes as a suitable place for sewage dumps. Isn’t it disgusting? From clothes, shoes, plastic bottles and cans, plastic bags to household wastes, we consciously or unconsciously dump things into huge water bodies. As a result, the beauty of the water bodies is completely destroyed as shown in heartbreaking images of water pollution, due to toxins and chemicals present in all trash, sea animals such as – turtles, whales are unable to breathe, being killed or became extinct.
You must be surprised to know – SEA TURTLES AND OTHER MARINE CREATURES usually mistake plastic and other garbage as food and ingest it. This can lead to blockages within their digestive system and even to death.
Massive Fish Kills!
Fishes are among beautiful sea creatures and they are also inhaled as a rich source of protein.
But, again it’s so sad to know that fish kills are becoming very visible events from past 3-4 years and rising as an issue of concern for many people. Fish kills can occur due to a number of reasons such as – algal bloom, acid sulfate soils, dissolved solids, but the ammonia (NH3) toxins are hazardous among all. Many fishes lost their lives due to harmful ammonia toxins as viewed in heart breaking images of water pollution.
Leads to Children Deaths!
Aren’t you shocked? When you hear news early morning telling that a 5-year-old schoolboy lost his life because of drinking contaminated water! Almost 90% of child deaths from diarrhoeal diseases are directly linked to lack of sanitation, contaminated water or inadequate hygiene. As being a responsible citizen, it’s time to ‘WAKE UP’ as the next turn may be of your own child.
Home to Water-Borne and Infectious Diseases!
Heart breaking images of water pollution are a true reflection of water pollution affecting human life? Nowadays, almost we all are having water-filters at home, offices, PVR’s, Hospitals, etc, but have you ever thought my friends – there are still many people in world who are below poverty line. They don’t even have water to drink, then how can they dream of having water-filters. How would you feel if you see small kid drinking sewage water as no other option is left?
Also, many water-borne diseases and infectious diseases are spreading through contaminated water leading to severe deaths such as – cholera, dysentery, jaundice.
At last, now it’s high time friends! We must start thinking that everywhere we go is our property which we need to protect and keep clean at all times. Otherwise, the whole scenario may seem like – “WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE, NOT A SINGLE DROP TO DRINK”.
