March’s theme is WATER
It’s the main source of all life. The lifeblood element that makes up 60% of our bodies.
It’s the liquid that we don’t drink enough of, yet waste effortlessly.
It’s home to millions of species, mysteries, and undiscovered knowledge.
We know more about the stars in the sky than the depths of our oceans.
We can use it to save lives. If used foolishly, it can take lives.
We think there is an abundance, yet only one percent can be touched. If we don’t protect our waters, then what will happen to life?
Our Perth chapter chose this month’s exploration of Water and Sofia Varano illustrated the theme.
