Indian AZE

Cool Cucumbers!

They are the recyclers of the sea bed, the earthworms on the sea floor, the millipedes of the bottom of the sea. All in one and one in all! And, they are under threat from habitat destruction, destructive fishing practices, and from over exploitation for food and traditional medicine abroad. Zooreach is involved in understanding livelihood dependence on this group and the impacts of such dependence on their long-term status.
