& underwater scene of the #PacificOcean with sea creatures and radioactive waste.

The #Oceanus #Mural was originally painted by students from Laney and Vista Colleges in 1977 under the guidance of instructor Gary W. Graham.

Before the #Farallon Islands became a national wildlife refuge the area was known as Farallon Island #Nuclear #Waste Dump. #Farallones #Azdarya” via @PhotoRepost_app View Larger

Fetching #water in #Madagascar by @abbiets “”What’s the internet?” …Sulu and Ze after the 5th water collection of the day, they are 13 and 12 and have been carrying over 200 litres of water a day on their heads up dangerous mountain paths since they were 7 years old. @wateraid is about to install a water pump in their village. I told them I was going to put their picture on the internet for #worldwaterday and they said, what’s the internet? #inthisdayandage #unbelievable #cleanwater #everyoneeverywhere @panospictures” via @PhotoRepost_app View Larger

Check out the work of the amazing John Trotter (@unamericain) who is on the ground in the parched #ColoradoRiver delta documenting a historic #water release. This is the first time water has been let go into Mexico for environmental purposes through the Morelos #Dam.
by @unamericain “The people of San Luis Rio Colorado come out to greet the return of the river that gave their city part of its name, as the pulse flows from the Morelos Dam upstream increased yet again to mimic the natural flow of a flood from the pre-dam era. The release from the dam will peak on Thursday, March 27 and then the flow will decrease slowly into May. The plan, which is part of the Minute 319 amendment to the Law of the River, is meant to restore a small part of the Colorado River’s desiccated Delta. #noaguanovida #coloradoriver #morelosdam #minute319 #pulserelease #sanluisriocolorado #border” via @PhotoRepost_app View Larger

water.org (@water) - Working with hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia and Central America to provide access to safe water and sanitation. Collaborating with Benjamin Heath (@benjaminheath), Steph Goralnick (@sgoralnick) and Simone Bramante (@brahmino) to share scenes from Kenya on Instagram.
Balazs Gardi (@balazsgardi) - Photojournalist who has spent the past decade documenting the effects of the unfolding global water crisis.
charity: water (@charitywater) - A non-profit organization on a mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person on the planet. Currently working with Vik Muniz (@vikmuniz) and Students Rebuild (@studentsrebuild) to bring clean water to over 16,000 people in Tanzania.
Corey Arnold (@arni_coraldo) - Photographer and fisherman documenting glaciers for Project Pressure (@projectpressure) to create the world’s first interactive glacier archive in order to better understand climate change.
Hurley H2O (@hurley_h2o) - Hurley’s water initiative striving alongside Waves for Water (@wavesforwater) to provide clean water for everyone.

Lifting Water | Part I Amuria Pooron picks up a 5-gallon #jerrycan of #water about one and a half kilometers from her home in Lowarengak village in #Turkana, #Kenya,#Africa. Amuria fetches water for washing and cleaning from the pond four times a day on top of two other trips to fetch drinking water from the nearby #LakeTurkana. #watercrisis #climatechange #complexemergency #WASH #Azdarya at Lowarengak, Kenya


#watercrisis in #Kenya by @balazsgardi “Ekal Lotaparin, a Turkana herdsman, stands in the #Todonyang plains near the Ethiopian border in northwest #Kenya. 
To prevent a deadly ambush by the rival #Daasanach tribe, Ekal leads a group of scouts to search the reeds on the shores of Lake #Turkana every morning before they drive their herd here to drink #water. “We came here because the #drought had affected our livestock. We are facing great danger but we cannot take our animals anywhere else to graze, we have no alternative. We have no source of food, we feed on dead animals.” #Africa #waterconflict #Azdarya” via @PhotoRepost_app View Larger

#river crossing by @patrickbrownphoto “#Elephants are used because their height enables them to be able to see over the 13-15 foot elephant grass to see #poaching activities. The lack on of noise the elephant makes allows the soliders to surprise the poachers and the elephants presence makes sure that most of all tigers won’t attack the soldiers while being on the elephants.

From the pristine #jungles of #Cambodia to the great national parks of India and Nepal, Asian #wildlife is being plundered on an unprecedented scale. Every year, it is estimated that up to 30,000 primates, 5 million birds, 10 million reptile skins and 500 million tropical fish are traded. The wildlife business is the third largest illegal trade in the world, rivalled only by guns and drugs. Strong beliefs in obscure parts of traditional Chinese medicine have driven this development.” via @PhotoRepost_app View Larger
