Main Issues

A drought is a period of below-average precipitation. A drought can last for months or years, or sometimes declared after as few as 15 days.

Drought can have serious health, social, economic, and political impacts.

Negative Effects on Enviroment

When there are droughts, they have a negative impact, because water is such an important part of our lives. Humans need water to live, so do animals and plants. We need water to grow the food that we eat, we also need water to take showers and wash dishes. So when there is a drought, crops start dying and animals get dehydrated, and we have to restrict our water use.

Wildlife that is most affected by Drought and how

Most wildlife would be affected by a drought. For example, cattle, deer, mountain lions, and bears. They would all be affected because they need water to survive. There wouldn't be enough plants for them eat, or enough water to drink
