Without water, life on the plant would not be possible. This resource is diminishing because of pollution and climate change.
Conservation of forest coverage and soil is important for the development of the water cycle. Forests act as sponges, filtering rainwater while preventing soil erosion and landslides.
What are watersheds?
Watersheds are areas where water is filtered and feeds lakes, lagoons, and rivers. Watersheds need vegetation cover to soften the impact of rain as it falls and to avoid landslides. <br/> <br/> This prevents both soil erosion and the reduction in a watershed’s ability to capture water.
