UC4LIFE Summary

The thick shelled river mussel (Unio crassus) brings LIFE+ back to rivers project aims to improve habitat conditions and water quality in 12 rivers and in the Baltic Sea. Alongside in-river restoration measures, the strongly threatened Unio crassus has been farmed and transplanted successfully into rivers where it has become extinct. The mussel is the project symbol, acting as a pedagogue while communicating why river restoration is necessary. Thriving populations of mussels = improved water quality = increased biodiversity. Thus, the journey for a healthier Baltic Sea has begun!
