Everyone recognizes the importance of water for our existence. We use water in many ways; however, people aren't the only ones who depend on clean water. Many different kinds of plants and animals that live in the Everglades/South Florida depend on water, too! Sharing the resource means working together to protect our lakes, rivers, canals, and wetlands!
