Aquatic Ecosystems

aquatic ecosystemsTalking about aquatic ecosystems, it means that the overall water ecosystems, whether on land, such as rivers, lakes, marshes, and of course the ocean. Trying to understand how they are interrelated to each other, understand each role.

It is important to understand about how the ecosystem work, in order to develop knowledge about how good ecosystem management, gave an overview to make policy, to then be able to take the most appropriate action to protect the aquatic ecosystems.

The water supply is closely related to the life aquatic ecosystems and ecosystem sustainability in a broader sense. Nature has a system and a unique and powerful mechanism to perform its function as a giant water filter and as a means of re-charger reserves of freshwater resources that are necessary for life.

Water stored in the soil in addition to functioning as a backup source of fresh water, also has an important role in maintaining the shape and construction of the land, and to prevent, reduce, or slow the occurrence of abrasion. Excessive exploitation of ground water will trigger the seep of sea water, far into the inland region, and accelerate the decline in soil surface.

Aquatic ecosystems are composed of various components that are inside, such as rocks, plants, animals, micro-organisms, etc.. The existence of living creatures in aquatic ecosystems can be used as a measure of the damage. This is something that really makes sense, when an ecosystem contaminated by pollutants then it will reduce the quality of life of living things in it.

From a few decades ago, the number and diversity of pollutants has increased significantly. These pollutants not only micro-organisms such as parasites, but also heavy metals and synthetic chemicals.

The most dangerous pollutants usually come from plant waste are thrown away without a proper sewage treatment system. Next came the threat of pollutants from transportation and waste from households. In large quantities, the resulting pollutant transport system and household no less dangerous than sewage plant. It is certain that ecosystem damage will occur very alarming.

Ecosystems like a chain of life that are strongly interlinked to form an unbroken perfect circle. And aquatic ecosystems is one part of the chain.

Damage to aquatic ecosystems can be described as the breaking chain of life, and it means a threat to the survival of all living creatures that exist in this world.

It will be recalled that the water is a very important element for the survival of life. When we preserve the aquatic ecosystems, then that means that maintained the continuity of life.

Water Conservation

water conservationWater conservation, this is something that should be done from now on and also the easiest step because it does not require sophisticated technology remarkable. It is very urgent to do given the great need of water for life.

Keep in mind that the supply of fresh water is not more than 2 % of the total water on earth. The remaining 97 % is salt water found in oceans and seas.

From the estimated 3% of the amount of fresh water, only 1 % is available for drinking water, while 2 % are in frozen form. While the human body, about 70 % -80 % is a liquid. Without food, a person can survive about a month, but without water a person can survive only about 5 to 7 days.

What has been presented above are some of the reasons why water conservation becomes an urgent need. Water conservation is beneficial decrease in all forms of water use. Not just close the faucet or shower meetings once a week ( we can be sure that your body becomes itchy so ).

Water conservation has a very broad scope and applied in all areas. It also means changing the mindset of people about how to use water efficiently. Provide new directions in business, where water conservation becomes part of the basis for planning a business or company. And also leads to efficient water use practices, as well as the development of a useful innovation.

Water efficiency is one of the major issues in the conservation of water, which is an effort to use as little water as possible in meeting the needs of the functions, tasks, processes, and the outcomes that need to be achieved.

Water is also an important part in economic productivity. For the water conservation should be included in the master plan, starting from the beginning of the production process until the sewage treatment process. And is also necessary for the development and continuous innovation to obtain water efficiency and environmental sustainability.

Water conservation should start now because this is a long-term solution to the crisis needs of water for life. To keep in mind the basic principles of the application of water conservation is to start from yourself, from now on, and do it consistently and simultaneously.

Humans remains to breed, do not be selfish, think also the fate of future generations. Water conservation will be one of the very valuable legacy for future generations to come.
