Do you enjoy walking on the beach and are you curious about the unique and rich diversity of life forms that live on the Black Sea coast? If yes we invite you to participate in an International Pontocaspian Contest 2017. The competition will award the 25 most active citizens from Ukraine and 25 from Romania with special prices such as bags, metal mugs and T-shirts with paintings of mollusks and fish on them.

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.
