Beauval Nature helps tequila splitfin fish in Mexico
Central Mexico is experiencing rapid deterioration of its waterways, mainly as a result of agricultural pollution linked to the use of pesticides. This deterioration has already led to the extinction of several species, including the tequila splitfin fish.
The Fish Ark Project, established in 1998, has allowed many highly endangered freshwater fish species to be bred and maintained in captivity. In addition, an educational programme for local communities has been set up to increase awareness about the importance of conserving natural wetlands in which endemic species live.
