Do you enjoy walking on the beach and are you curious about unique and rich diversity of life forms that live in the Black Sea? If yes we invite you to participate in an International Pontocaspian Contest 2017 for schools. The competition will reveal 3 most active classes from Ukraine and 3 from Romania and give special prices like Bags, metal mugs and T-shirts with paintings of mollusks and fish on them to each student in the winning class and the teachers.

The purpose of the leaflet is: (1) Raise awareness of the uniqueness of Pontocaspian biodiversity and the current biodiversity crisis in different target groups. (2) Collect data on recent distribution of the Pontocaspian, Marine, Freshwater and invasive mollusk species in Northern Black Sea through the joint efforts of citizen scientists. This will help us update our distribution maps on our taxonomic platform: PC-Tax (www.mollusca.myspecies.info) whereupon we will be able to identify the areas of follow up action.
