Priority conservation areas mapped for the worlds longest river

James Allen and team have mapped the priority conservation areas for freshwater fish for the Nile River for the first time. The Nile runs through 11 countries and this work highlights how countries can collaborate to more cost-effectively achieve conservation goals.

The study is published in Science Advances (DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aau7668).
