Pearls in Peril

⇐Project Updates

The Pearls in Peril Life Funding Project came to an end in October 2016. Since the beginning of the project in 2013 OHFT have completed encystement, monitoring and Pearls in the Classroom. It is hoped that those actions will have helped to conserve and enhance vulnerable pear mussel populations in the Hebrides. The work linked to the actions has meant OHFT received over £5,000 in funding. More information on Pearl Mussels, their life cycle and importance to the eco system can be watched in an eight minute video here.
