Freshwater Pearl Mussel
Sad to see our latest survey finding the illegal killing of one of the most threatened, and longest living invertebrates in Europe. Through projects such as Pearls in Peril Mo-the-Mussel-Pearls-in-Peril-EU and Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime in Scotland, many partners are doing lots of great work to save this jewel in the crown of our rivers.
This pointless hunting for pearls risks undoing so much of their good work. If you see anything suspicious or have information that might help combat the threat of persecution please contact Police Scotland. More about the story here
