Let’s Not Forget Those Lakes and Rivers
This year’s World Oceans Day (or World Oceans Week) feels different for a multitude of reasons. Most of which I need not explain. So that prompted me to do something a little different as well. What bodies of water don’t get a day or a week commemorated in their honor? Lakes and rivers. DID YOU KNOW freshwater lakes are now heavily affected by microplastic pollution? Did you also know that most major rivers flow into the ocean? These lesser honored bodies of water deserve as much attention for many reasons.
