In French In the English translation
Auprès du grand Niger puissantQui rend la nature plus belle,

Soyons fiers et reconnaissants

De notre liberté nouvelle.

Évitons les vaines querelles

Afin d’épargner notre sang;

Et que les glorieux accents

De notre race sans tutelle

S’élèvent dans un même élan

Jusqu’à ce ciel éblouissant

Où veille son âme éternelle

Qui fera le pays plus grand.refrain

Debout Niger: Debout!

Que notre œuvre féconde

Rajeunisse le cœur de ce vieux continent,

Et que ce chant s’entende aux quatre coins du monde

Comme le cri d’un Peuple équitable et vaillant!

Debout Niger: Debout!

Sur le sol et sur l’onde,

Au rythme des tamtams, dans leur son grandissant,

Restons unis, toujours, et que chacun réponde

À ce noble avenir qui nous dit: «En avant! »

Nous retrouvons dans nos enfants

Toutes les vertus des Ancêtres:

Pour lutter dans tous les instants

Elles sont notre raison d’être.

Nous affrontons le fauve traître

À peine armés le plus souvent,

Voulant subsister dignement

Sans detruire pour nous repaître.

Dans la steppe où chacun ressent

La soif, dans le Sahel brûlant,

Marchons, sans défaillance, en maîtres

Magnanimes et vigilants.

Along the great powerful Nigerthat makes the landscape more beautiful,

Let us be proud and grateful for

our new freedom!

Let us avoid nonsensical arguments,

To save us bloodshed,

and may the glorious voices of

Our race be free from oppression!

Let us stand up in one leap

As high as the shining sky,

Where its immortal soul watches That

will make the land bigger!refrain

Up! Niger! Up!

May our fruitful works

renew the heart of this ancient continent!

And may the song be heard

In the four corners of the earth

As the call of a righteous and brave people!

Up! Niger! Up!

On the land and on the wave.

To the sounds of the drums

In their growing rhythms

Let us always remain united,

And may each one

follow Into this noble future

That tells us: Go forward!

We find in our children

all the virtues of the ancestors

To fight in every moment

They are our raison d’etre

We defy the treacherous beast

Mostly only weakly armed

We want to survive with dignity

Without destroying for our well-being

In the steppe, where everyone feels

the thirst in the burning Sahel

marches, without despair, as gentlemen

generous and vigilant

Niger: plants

In the south, in the dry savannah of Niger, mainly grasses, thorn bushes and dry forest grow. Tamarinds, baobabs, kapok trees and mahogany trees grow in the lower region. Due to overgrazing and increasing drought, the plants of the savannah have suffered in recent years. The north of the country is almost completely devoid of vegetation and is largely dominated by the desert.

The only two orchid species found in Niger – Eulophia cucculata and Eulophia guineensis – are located in the 10,000 km² W National Park. Gallery forests can also be found in the country along the rivers.
