Filters, efficient machines reduce water pollution, water contamination. Rules and laws with high prices try to reduce water consumption

Water life

On BSB web-pages we just try to give you a glimpse.
On this site you will hear about life in our water.
Did you hear about different Water qualities? Can humans drink the same water animals can drink?
What makes water so different?
When we compare bottled water with pond water is there a difference?

When we look in a microscope and we see this:

Biology water life: Paramecium aurelia a life form found in fresh water, but also in oceans
Conservation education online: Paramecium graphic aquatic life form found with its body functions Paramecium multiplies by splitting in two half
This tiny animal is called paramecium
It belongs to the group of unicellular ciliate.
Its size ~ 0.05 mm to 0.32 mm in length.
Paramecium has cilia, you also can say hair,
all over its body. They use these
cilia = tiny hairs to move around.

What do you think? Did we find the paramecium
in bottled water or pond water?
man made pond for wildlife and education at Bear Springs Blossom Nature Preserve Yes, you are right. This was pond water!
This is a close up photo of our pond.
At the BSB Nature Preserve we have
a huge biodiversity of water life in it
See a dragon fly resting on
water lily leaves

Now let's look in the microscope again:

little creatures in the water actinophrys
Look at this tiny little creature -
doesn't it look like a sun?
Scientists gave it the name Actinophrys and
put it in the heliozoan protists group.
Each Actinophryid is uni-cellular, with a spherical shape.
They eat flagellates, diminutive cilates, and microscopic algae

a living being with one cell, it can change its body shape, or flowing around food amoeba
Amoebae have no definite shape. Amoeboids have one nucleus.

when biologists look in the microscope they call this tiny animal euplotes
Look at the commonly found single-celled organism Euplotes.
Looking at filamentous algae in a pond you can see it
moving up and down. The legs of this protozoan are modified
cilia, called cirri. It feeds by drawing a current of water
under the cell body into the cytostome - we would say mouth

the most famous tiny water creature daphnia pulex, jumps like flea in the water
This is a Daphnia. Most people call them water fleas
It is a tiny planktonic crustaceans,
with a size varying from 0.2 to 4 mm.
Daphnia have a special swimming style, they jump like a flea.
Daphnia can live in acidic ponds, or in
alkaline lakes, ponds, and rivers.
BSB water life education: easy to find in a healthy pond is this hydra Hydras have a radial symmetry and
are tiny predatory animals.
Found in most healthy ponds,
lakes and rivers,
when it is not too cold.
Hydras move their 'arms'
through the water trying to catch food.
Their size varies from below
one millimeter up to 3 mm


Lets have a Quiz about life in the water:
What do you think?
What can you find in a drop of sea water?


Salt and plankton

What do you think?
What is E.coli?


Read more about the Escherichia coli bacterium
found in water, the human body, and ... BSB education: the e coli bacteria was discovered by Theodor Escherich from Bavaria in 1885



What do you think?
Why do we test water for e coli?
Many rivers, lakes, creeks are home to e-coli. A few don't harm humans, but many of e.coli can harm people. Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria normally live in the intestines of healthy people and animals. Most varieties of E. coli are harmless or cause relatively brief diarrhea. But a few particularly nasty strains, such as E. coli O157:H7, can cause severe abdominal cramps, bloody diarrhea and vomiting. You may be exposed to E. coli from contaminated water or food  especially raw vegetables and undercooked ground beef. Healthy adults usually recover from infection with E. coli O157:H7 within a week, but young children and older adults can develop a life-threatening form of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome = HUS. A Petri dish (or Petri plate or cell culture dish) is a shallow glass or plastic cylindrical lidded dish that biologists use to culture cells or small moss plants
Every blue dot you can see here is an e-coli bacterium growing in this Petri dish
Some types of e coli can cause serious food poisoning in humans, can kill humans.
E.coli gets in the water by fecal contamination, from humans or mammals or birds.


What do you think?
Why should we be careful with cryptosporidium oocysts


It is a microscopic pathogen and a leading cause of diarrhea and malnutrition and the most common source of infection in immune-weakened people.

What do you think?
In some rivers and ponds is an extraordinary growth of algae - Why?


The word Eutrophication is describing the over-fertilization of lakes, rivers, ponds.
Negative environmental effects are anoxia, what means loss of oxygen.
Fish and other water-life will die.
The reason is mostly untreated sewage effluent, agricultural run-off with fertilizers.


Why do we need to protect Nature?

Water pollution kills water life: ponds are often contaminated with trash and chemicals
You can find many of ponds with dirty water,
old gasoline containers, plastic bags,
and trash.
Often you get a bad smell from far away!
nature is beautiful at the pond of Bear Springs Blossom Nature preserve, with water life, fish, hydra, amoeba, Daphnia, dragon flies. Nature education explain why nature conservation is so important Do you like our pond?
Wouldn't it be nice to have more On the banks we can relax, play, watch the birds,
discover aquatic plants, enjoy nature and
have a good time with family and friends..

That's why it is important to protect Nature!
Nature Conservation protects plants,
animals and humans!!

Work with us! Protect our precious water!

Conservation Education (CE) is the combination of two words that have become one word to educators.
CE is the ability to give people opportunities to grow in knowledge and create changes to their life style and their environment,to have a better life, to have a safer future!
