Freshwater Habitat

"Freshwater habitats include rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds, streams, and wetlands (such as swamps and marshes). Freshwater accounts for only three percent of the world’s water. (The rest is saltwater.) But despite that tiny amount, freshwater habitats are homes to more than 100,000 species of plants and animals." (National Geographic n.d.)
