Slow and steady wins the race!
This week we announced some great news for the Magazine Mountain shagreen snail. In 1989 the snail was listed as a threatened species due to habitat loss and development affects to the land.
Now, 24 years later, the snail is the first ever invertebrate to recover and be removed from the Endangered Species Act!

These snails have a dusky brown colored shell and can only be found in Logan County, Arkansas mainly on the Magazine Mountain. This is a major success story for Arkansas.
