The Freshwater Fish Specialist Group would like to thank the Zoological Society of London, UK (ZSL) for their generous support towards our running costs this year. The FFSG is a small organization with a challenging mission ‘to achieve conservation and sustainable use of freshwater fishes and their habitats‘. Without the support of organisations, such as ZSL, it would not be possible for us to reach our goals.
Founded in 1826, the ZSL is an international scientific, conservation and educational charity whose mission is to promote and achieve the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats. Their mission is realised through groundbreaking science, active conservation projects in more than 50 countries and their two zoos, ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
The FFSG has worked closely with ZSL for a number of years, as the Anguillid Specialist Sub Group is based at the institution as well as some of our most proactive members. This support will be sure to strengthen our partnership both now and in years to come.
