25-09-2019 - Pachystyla bicolor
Our project targeted one of the most endangered snail species in Mauritius, the Pachystyla bicolor. From four individuals, we captive bred more than 500 individuals to create a captive colony and individuals for release. We designed and built two predator proof fences to exclude all the snails' predators in their natural environment and released 50 adults in each enclosure, which are surviving, growing and breeding.
