Title of Photograph: Water Preserves the Earth
Description: A Tiger lingers near a pool of water, its primary source of life, yet is reluctant to drink from it because the water is so polluted. This photo works to juxtapose one of the most powerful creatures of the wild with one of the most vital, life-giving resources of the earth. However, supplies are limited and demand is increasing. The tiger’s body language says it all: we are facing an urgent water crisis and the world cannot continue to ignore the strong link between water and energy. For a sustainable future, the source of energy for all living and non-living things is water.
