Dear colleagues,

Freshwaters are fundamental for life on earth, and yet freshwater biodiversity remains poorly documented, understood, and protected. A global initiative is now needed to strengthen freshwater science, outreach, education, policy, and conservation efforts.

To support further development of such an initiative a team led by Sonja Jähnig and Michael Monaghan at the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology (IGB) in Berlin, Germany, has now created a 10-minute survey to identify and prioritize efforts of the global community working with, and interested in, freshwater biodiversity. We particularly encourage the participation of practitioners in conservation and education as well as people involved with the making and implementing of freshwater-relevant policies.  

You can find the survey in six different languages (EN, FR, DE, ES, CN, RU) at


Please participate and share the link in your own networks. The survey will be online until September 30th 2017.

Thanks for your support!
