Water is Life. Don’t UnderMine It

Vibrant 5-minute animation exploring the impacts of the extractive industries on the water cycle.

This vibrant animation from The Gaia Foundation and animator Ben Pearce takes us on two very different journeys through the water cycle. One shows the life-giving nature of water for everything from forests to frogs. The other reveals the ways in which mining is damaging the water cycle, putting life itself in jeopardy.
