Today, March 22nd, is World Water Day — the official start to a week-long celebration and recognition of the world’s most precious resource. It’s also a time to generate awareness over dwindling sources of fresh water — as well as those polluted and harming people, plants, and animals.
National Geographic Magazine has devoted its entire April issue (out now) to the subject of water — and how the world can work to protect this resource. Besides some stunning photos of how water factors into the lives of people around the word, there are also some great articles on everything from California’s growing water crisis to the technology of desalinization plants. They also have an interactive freshwater feature online to check out.
But I’ve saved the best part for last! Starting today through April 2nd, you can download this special issue of NatGeo for FREE! Simply click here to explore the issue online at no cost.
