The Trust as part of the European Eel Project has this year installed an aquarium with European Eels in the Museum in Aberdare. On Friday 10th May Directors and Volunteers of the Trust met with Dawn Bowden AM  and the Museum Manager William Tregaskes to formally launch the project. Dawn is the Eel Biodiversity Champion in the National Assembly for endangered Species the eel being on what is called the Red List. Once a staple human food source as well as a food source for other birds and animals the Eel has declined in quantity by over 90% in the last fifteen years. This work the Trust is doing is to bring this to the attention of the public as well as to gender interest in a species that in Wales not many outside what we would call the FISHING FRATERNITY are aware of.
