The Cost of Water - To Wildife And To Your Organization
Venue: New Orleans Convention Center

To many of us water is recreation; however, much of the world is living in a water shortage. In rural areas Africans use only 8-10 gallons of water, while in Colorado the average is 100 gallons of water per day for domestic purposes alone. How might the trend in zoos and aquariums toward underwater viewing and filtering water be compounding water shortages; and what are some ways we can work to reduce and conserve? This session will examine zoos and aquariums and observe not only how much water they are using, but how they are looking to use less.
