This website has a lot of information about the UK’s only native crayfish, the rare and fascinating White-clawed crayfish (White-claws).
This fantastic freshwater invertebrate is very rare and its numbers are declining due to impacts from introduced crayfish species such as the North American Signal crayfish and due to the loss of suitable habitat.
This website contains information about White-claws, with facts about their decline, crayfish conservation and how you can give crayfish helping hand. This website also provides facts, photos and advice about introduced crayfish.
