A Visit to The Rainbow Springs State Park
The summer of 2014, I visited the Rainbow Springs State Park in Florida. It was the first time I ever been to springs and it was a quite wonderful first time experience. Like most people, I was fascinated by the vast blue and clear water. Water grasses are growing along the waterside, moving with wind and water flow, with small fishes and turtles swimming through it.
However, this harmony was interrupted: I saw some kids were spitting into the water and a small turtle was swimming with gum in its mouth! Since I returned from Rainbow Springs, I can’t get the picture out of my mind, I’m really worried about what will happen to that small turtle.
The trip raised me one question:
How human behavior can affect water
and animal species live inside of it?
