Niobrara National Scenic River Resources and Threats  The Niobrara River is where six major biomes converge to form a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Threats to the river arise from fire exclusion leading to the expansion of ponderosa pine into grassland area, changes in microclimates, the spread of invasive plants and the high volume of visitors during peak periods.

Oil Spill Containment Positioned by multiple vessels, an attempt to contain an oil spill is made using temporary floating booms. Booms are used to reduce the possibility of polluting shorelines and other resources, and to help make recovery easier. Booms help to concentrate oil in thicker surface layers so that skimmers, vacuums, or other collection methods can be used more effectively. symbol,vector,illustration,fossil fuel,extraction,exploration,offshore,drilling,BP,Deepwater Horizon,spill,clean up,response,safety,environmental degradation
