Protecting our River Basin for the Future!

Things like pollution, population urbanization, and many other things are destroying the river basins. In order to help protect the river we need to stop littering near where the trash could run off into the water. We need to stop taking land away from the animals just so that we can make ourselves more urban. Find spaces that the animals don't use instead of taking places where they've already made their own.
