Transcript of Danube River

By The International Environmental Organization
Represented by:
Raven Crowe, Savanna Lynch, Raj Kamdar, and Ronnie Franklin
What are some animals found in and around the Danube?
There are over 5,000 species living in or around the river. Some animals found around and in the Danube are Sturgeons, Great White Pelicans, Beavers, European Kingfishers, and European Pond Turtles. There are 88 freshwater mollusks species, 75 dragonfly species, 18 amphibian species, 73 native freshwater fish, and 9 brackish-water fish species. There's more than 100 fish species in the river too.
If you don't take human concerns into account, focusing on just the animals and plants, how does the way you look at the Gabcikovo-Nagymaros Conflict change?
Since you are representing the rights of nature what do you suggest as the best solution?
What is the vegetation like around the Danube?

What is the International Environmental Organization?
The International Environmental Organization (IEO) is an organization that represents the rights of nature. Due to the fact that plants and animals can't talk, this organization makes sure plants and animals are treated how they should be. Today we are here to represent the plants and animals living around the Danube River and how they are effected by the Gabcikovo-Nagymoros Conflict.

Explanation of Bibliography
The resources we used are very impotant to the overall information in our project. The facts we gained from websites and worksheets help give our project more detail and substance. The more detail and substance our presentation has the better we can represent the nature, that lives in and around the Danube River. The more or less information can also change how we look at the Gabcikovo-Nagymoros Conflict. These resources were truly the best we could find and provided the best information.

How did we come up with the anwers to these questions?
With a little help from the World Wide Web we had the answers at our fingertips. We also used worksheets that had previously been given to us that had to deal with the Danube River and the Gabcikovo-Nagymoros Conflict. By using all of the resources available to us with a little bit of background knowledge we got the answers to our questions.
A suggestion for a solution is to help keep nature clean for the plants and animals. We could keep trash and pollution out of the river and air. To get people to not pollute we could fine companies and people who pollute.This would help the plants and animals stay healthy and keep their enviroment healthy and clean too. Another problem is the that since Hungary didn't build their part of the dam so many bad things happened to them. A solution is that Hungary builds their part of the dam so both Slovakia and Hungary have equal consequences, since they both signed the agreement. To ensure that Hungary builds their section of the dam both countries should bring in a mediator that makes sure both countries are doing what they are supposed to.
If we don't take human concerns into account, a lot of pollution and trash would get into the enviroment and hurt the plants and animals. The way we look at the conflict would change because it would get worse. A lot more animals and plants would start dying off and the river would we polluted.
It can help prevent flooding
Provides jobs
It's a water reserve to help plants, animals, and humans
Produces hydroelectric power
Helped farmers in Slovakia irrigate crops
Slovakia recieved all the money from ships that used the canal
The dam modernized, and brought electiricity to the people
Brought a higher standard of living to the people
It could collapse and a flood could occur
If it does collapse its expensive to rebuild the dam
It could start political and environmental problems between countries
It can effect the way the river flows
Threatens entire populations of endangered sturgeons , who can't go upstream and have children
Some plants and animals lost their habitats
Pollution is trapped behind the dam
The freshwater underneath the Szigetkoz area became polluted
Farmers in Hungary couldn't water their crops due to the low river levels
Vegetation around the river includes, Red Water Lillies, White Water Lillies, Reedbeds, Common Reed, Mace Reed, Sedge, Dutch Tush, Brook Mint, Grass, etc. The vegetation zone is a Boreal Forest.
