Thank you to our HS Living Environment teachers Ms. Sharkey and Ms. DuBois for bringing us March Madness! March Mammal Madness (inspired by the NCAA basketball tournament) is a nationwide tournament of simulated battles amongst 65 animals to start. Students researched the animals and predicted their winners based on adaptations/characteristics of the various animals. Who is the fastest? Who is venomous? Who has the best fight style or even the most motivation. Battle outcomes are released from a team of researchers and we are following closely to see who will be the 2021 March Mammal Madness Champion!!!

Today 1 in 3 people or 2.2 billion people around the world lack safe drinking water. (WHO/UNICEF 2019) Over half of the global population or 4.2 billion people lack safe sanitation. (WHO/UNICEF 2019) 673 million people still practice open defecation. (WHO/UNICEF 2019) Almost half of the schools in the world do not have hand-washing facilities with soap and water. (WHO/UNICEF 2020) Approximately 50 litres of water per person per day are needed to ensure that most basic needs are met while keeping public health risks at a low level. (WHO, 2017) 207 million people spend over 30 minutes per round trip to collect water from an improved source. (WHO/UNICEF 2019) 297,000 children under five years old – more than 800 every day – die every year from diarrheal diseases due to poor sanitation, poor hygiene, or unsafe drinking water. (WHO 2019) Under-fives living in countries experiencing protracted conflict are 20 times more likely to die from causes linked to unsafe water and sanitation than from direct violence. (UNICEF, 2019) Hygiene promotion is the most cost effective health intervention. (World Bank 2016) 2 out of 5 people or 3 billion people around the world lack basic hand-washing facilities at home. (WHO/UNICEF 2019) Universal access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation and hygiene would reduce the global disease burden by 10%. (WHO 2012)
