There are still some lakes and rivers struggling to recover from the extreme acidity. Acid rain has killed many animals and organisms living both on land and in water. Acid rain affects humans as well. This is a cycle, which involves the release of toxics into the atmosphere and then brings it back to earth, damaging the environment.
