Water: Oceans, Lakes & Rivers

NOAA Flower Garden Banks 01

Water is synonymous with life on Earth. In each of its forms, water is the lifeblood of all humans, animals, and plants. Although we named it “Earth,” our planet is more than 70 percent ocean. Microscopic marine microbes like plankton generate the other half of all oxygen on Earth. Humans are just beginning to understand plankton, explore the depths of the oceans, and marvel at the spectacular wonder of the undersea world.

Lakes, rivers, and other freshwater bodies provide critical support to life on land. Frogs and amphibians spend their entire lives in aquatic environments. Mammals, large and small, all depend on regular access to clean water. Humans pipe water from lakes, rivers, and aquifers to quench thirsty crops and cities. Visitors will be able to learn about heroic efforts to clean our oceans of trash, protect aquatic species, and provide clean drinking water to every person on Earth.
