Natural History Live

These are free online natural history talks, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from either an FSC member of staff or a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom and we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event. Sign up to the FSC BioLinks newsletter to find out about our other online learning opportunities here.

Conservation of the European eel – what can you do?

Joe Pecorelli will be our guest speaker, he’s a conservation project manager with ZSL. He specialises in freshwater conservation and has been involved in ZSL’s eel conservation project for 15 years.

The European eel (Anguilla anguilla) is Critically Endangered under the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List Categories and Criteria because it has markedly declined in abundance across all life-history stages in much of its natural range.  This talk will introduce you to the life cycle of the eel, summarise the many threats to eel and focus on what we can do in freshwater to help them. Be warned, what might start as a mild interest in eels can lead to obsession!
