Giant Water Lilies in the Amazon

  1. 1. GIANT WATER LILIES IN THE AMAZON Nabila Khashoggi
  2. 2. Introduction  Entrepreneur Nabila Khashoggi is the founder of cosmetic and lifestyle company called Nabila K. Nabila Khashoggi works closely with Italian NGO THE CHILDREN FOR PEACE ONLUS, whose mission is to provide education and other forms of help to children in Third World countries. A mother of two, Nabila Khashoggi wrote a graphic novel series for children called Spartan and the Green Egg. The books are environmental science fiction adventure stories about four young friends who discover an alien space ship and use it to embark on voyages of discovery around the world. Spartan and the Green Egg; A Trip to the Rainforest is the first in a series where the team explores the Amazonian river basin home of the Victoria amazonica, giant water lilies.
  3. 3. Water Lilies  Victoria amazonica is the largest species of the nymphaeaceae family. Its leaves have upturned edges, and are big enough to imagine a child sitting comfortably on one - and many are large enough to actually support her weight, plus a couple of her friends. Some lily leaves grow up to eight feet in diameter and can support up to 300 pounds. The water lily’s white, night-blooming flower is small in comparison, but can still grow to about a foot in diameter. The lilies have sharp spines that help protect them from nibbling fish or animals, and have adapted their cycles to the variable rise and fall of the shallow waters of the Amazon River.
