In the Quad Cities, there are three species of federally endangered mussel species in danger of extinction. When the construction of the I-74 bridge posed a threat to these and other mussels species, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) started an effort to save these animals. Betsy Bainbridge, Biologist with the USFWS, will discuss the project which included moving 140,000 mussels between Bettendorf and Moline.
