The Freshwater Pearl Mussel, Margaritifera margaritifera, is classified as endangered on the IUCN Red List. Its greatest threats include loss of suitable habitat largely as a result of anthropological pressures. The FBA has reared juveniles from adult stock under controlled and enhanced conditions at their unique freshwater pearl mussel Ark, leading a 3-year national project to improve river conditions to reintroduce these juveniles to their native rivers.
