London Rivers Week: help migrating eels: join monitoring project
27th June 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The European eel (Anguilla Anguilla) is critically endangered. Recruitment of young eels back into European rivers has rapidly declined over the last 30 years.
ZSL has been monitoring the migration of eels into the Thames catchment since 2005 and now we need your help to:
· check eel traps
· count and measure any eels present
· upload the data onto the ZSL website
Come and learn how at this fun session!
Monitoring runs from May to September, so you can enjoy the summer on the river while collecting vital data to understand eels. At the end of the monitoring you will be invited to the 2017, Eel Forum at ZSL, London Zoo.
