The Alabama Aquatic Biodiversity Center (AABC) was honored with a Special Recognition Award during the 74th annual meeting of the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (SEAFWA).
AABC is the nation’s largest state nongame recovery program. Its mission is to promote the conservation and restoration of rare freshwater species in Alabama waters and, in turn, restore cleaner water in the state’s waterways.
“Many species of mollusks, like the spiny river snail, are either extinct or missing from state waters,” SEAFWA President Paul Johansen said. “While most of the public may be unaware of the importance of such species, the AABC works tirelessly to restore them and ensure clean water for generations to come.”
