Did you know that the water you get in your taps is directly indicative of the health of the wetlands in your city?
Every city across India is blessed with wetlands. These water bodies, so far, have been helping cities meet their water demands and support their supply chains. As wetlands help recharge our groundwater and keep our water sources secure, they ensure a regular supply of water in villages, towns and cities.
However, the rate at which we are drawing out water far exceeds the rate at which our groundwater resources can be naturally replenished.
Wasteful consumption, high levels of pollution and unchecked construction projects are currently putting so much pressure on our water bodies, that it will not be long before they completely disappear – thrusting us into the greatest water crisis of all times.
The Water Tales campaign aims to help you take small steps – at your home, school or workplace – that can play a big role in reducing the country’s overall water consumption and in saving its wetlands.
With these simple changes that you make in your life, you can control what happens to your wetlands.

Why the need for this campaign?
During the last century, about 50% of India’s wetlands have disappeared!
Your involvement today can save our wetlands from becoming extinct or turning into drains. Let us together take a few steps back and reverse the events that have led us to this crisis. Let us exercise our power, while we have it – to help bring back the country’s wetlands.
