Description

World Water Day is an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference. World Water Day dates back to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development where an international observance for water was recommended. The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. It has been held annually since then. In honor of World Water Day I bring this beautiful waterfall. The name of this waterfall is Salto Corumbá and it was dry for more than a century. The river which fed this waterfall was diverted to the extraction of gold and only in 1988 the new owners of the area were able to recover the river and the waterfall again showed its lush beauty. Today this waterfall over 68 meters high is visited by many people who delight in their strength and the power of recovery of of nature.
