Water, Nature’s Magic Trick

FACT: Water follows a continuous cycle. Over a 100-year period, a water molecule spends 98 years in the ocean, 20 months as ice, two weeks in lakes and rivers, and less than a week in the atmosphere.

FACT: Even solids contain water. A chicken is made up of 75% water. A pineapple is made up of 85% water. And, surprisingly, an elephant is made up of 70% water… not including the water they drink through their trunks!  

FACT: Even though water is all around us, there’s a risk that we’ll run out. Humans can only drink fresh water and a lot of it is trapped in ice caps, oceans and glaciers leaving only 1% of the world’s water left for us to drink.
