in 1989

Exxon Valdez Oil Spill 1989

The Exxon Valdez Oil spill occurred on March 24 1989. The large ship hit ground on Prince William Sound. At first it spilled over 11 million gallons into the sea. This disaster has caused severe damage to the wildlife in that area. Many of the animals that lived there were destroyed by the oil pollution. Birds couldn't fly because their wings were covered in oil and the oil also caused major mutations in babies. Also, most of the wildlife population that lived there was killed. The bay is still not fully recovered.

Aswan High Dam

Aswan High Dam

 The Aswan High Dam cost around 1 billion dollars to complete. The dam holds back a reservoir, Lake Nasser. It stops the flow of the water but, also creates flooding in certain areas. Most people living in areas surrounding were forced to relocate since everything would be indulged by the water.  Also, the dam stops the healthy soil from being deposited to the banks. Many ancient structures had to be moved because of the dam.
