want to help protect our oceans—but what about our lakes, streams,
ponds, and rivers?
Despite making up less than half a percent of the
world’s total water supply, freshwater
is the lifeblood of human civilizations and critical aquatic
ecosystems. Fortunately for us, there is a diverse array of biota
working hard to keep these vital waters clean and healthy.
In this short

dive into a busy tropical stream ecosystem and learn how shrimp, crabs,
and other invertebrates are creating a nutrient-rich environment for
wildlife to flourish and humans to enjoy.
