What harmful effects does acid rain have on our environment?

    Acid rain has many ecological effects, but none is greater than its impact on lakes, streams, wetlands, and other aquatic environments. Acid rain makes waters acidic and causes them to absorb the aluminum that makes its way from soil into lakes and streams. This combination makes waters toxic to crayfish, clams, fish, and other aquatic animals. This eventually impacts species throughout the food chain—including non-aquatic species such as birds. Acid rain also damages forests, robbing the soil of essential nutrients and releasing aluminum in the soil, which makes it hard for trees to take up water. Trees’ leaves and needles are also harmed by acids.
