A global citizen science platform to discover, share and identify wildlife
Hi Sckel, I am very happy to know about the campaign there, but, it's sad to here about what is happening to the exotic species. These snails have a power on its own, to become survivors, in the match of survival of the fittest, but when humans assist them, that become worse.
Hi, Namitha. We have campaigns to eradicate African snail in Brazil. But many people do not know how to identify the African snail, which is supposedly vector the diseases, and eventually exterminate other species, putting them at risk of extinction. (http://bio.sophiapublisher.com/html-464-...)I found a great snail recently, researched about it and found that it is an exotic species at risk of extinction. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/272...
Yeah Jemma, they are really beautiful, but you know...
Sorry Namitha.Your source of grief.Beautiful creatures though!
