With your support, we will collect important information on populations of an endangered freshwater mussel species, the Brook Floater, which will help us better understand how to improve our conservation efforts for that species across its natural range. This project is part of an international effort to protect this species at risk. The samples collected will be sent to the Aquatic Resource Center and Berkshire National Fish Hatchery and results will be shared with project participants and other project stakeholders.

Our project leader has over 5 years of experience with freshwater mussel monitoring. She will ensure scientific rigour is followed, and will create videos and share pictures of our work via social media, our website and traditional media to increase awareness of this species at risk which is not often seen or understood.
