Why is the Nile River important?



• The Nile River is the longest river in the world.
• Played a crucial role in the development of Egyptian civilisation.
• Trade was done along the Nile.
• Known as the gateway between life and death.
• One was “Black Land” and "Red Land", which was behind the Black Land
• People often connect the Nile to Egypt but only 22% actually lies in Egypt.

Fish Biodiversity of the River Nile
Human Impacts
The Source of the Nile
• Fish is the main food source for inhabitants who live next to or nearby the river.
• Home to 129 fish species, 26 of which are native to the river.
• One of the invasive species is Procambarus clarkia, a kind of crayfish. They adapted to the Nile environment and feed off fish eggs.

• The introduction of the Nile perch, perch is a type of fish, is a harmful event that happened to the Nile River.
• Many fish species became extinct, after the perch became the dominant species.
• Unlike the major cities of the world, waste and rubbish is dumped in the Nile. Bacteria and disease are spread throughout the Nile, therefore it is unsafe to swim in.

Introduction to the Nile
Today we have chosen to talk about the Nile. For two reasons, one because it is the longest river in the world and two because it is polluted because of human interaction.
Facts:
* The Nile runs through most of Africa, not just Egypt.
* There are many aquatic invasive species, that have adapted to the environment.
* The Nile is made up of two different rivers; The White Nile and the Blue Nile
* Below are the hieroglyphics that make up "The Nile"
