To understand where and how the eels live we need to map their distribution and locate where they live in groups.

How can I help you?

We want your help to register eels alive and in their natural environment. If you know where to find eels, or have seen eels swimming alone, or in groups, film them, send it to us and become a citizen-scientist!
