Hello, my name is Vanessa. I would like to welcome you to my site about the environment. Growing up, I lived along a beautiful river full of jumping fish. The birds flew overhead, ready to catch their next meal in their talons. I watched as the wildlife lived in relative harmony along the riverbed. Unfortunately, as I reached my adult year, the river’s water quality and wildlife populations started to decline. Pollution was cited as the cause, which broke my heart. I will use this site to explore the way societies are damaging the world around them and propose solutions to solve this problem. Thanks.

Watch out for these signs that your tank needs to be pumped right away.
