Niger Delta University which is located in Wilberforce Island, Bayelsa State is in the heart of Niger Delta, Southern part of Nigeria. This is a riverine area that is a coastal belt of mainly swamps along the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the world’s largest bow-shaped river deltas. This region has fresh and saltwater habitats with an annual rainfall of 4,000 mm (157.5 in). The vegetation of the region consists mainly of forest swamps. Closest to the sea is a belt of salt-water Mangrove swamp having sand beaches separating them from the sea. These swamps are formed by serpentine creeks and distributaries of the River Niger. The region is blessed with crude oil as it boasts of about 70% of Nigeria’s total crude oil production.
