28-12-2014 - Widemouth gambusia

Mexico is home to hydrogen sulfide-rich springs so toxic that few organisms can survive in them. This project aims to preserve highly endemic fish that have adapted to these extreme environments. The project particularly focuses on Gambusia eurystoma, which is only known from a single sulfide spring complex. It also pertains to other micro-endemics in the area (Poecilia sulphuraria and P. thermalis).
