The “Don’t Move a Mussel” campaign has been expanded.
Corrine Jackson from the Okanagan Basin Water Board says the three year old program aimed at preventing invasive mussels from entering BC waterways, is now looking for the public to spread the message to friends, neighbors and relatives about the dangers.
“We know that’s not an easy conversation to necessarily have, but we’re telling people that if you love our lakes, if you love our beaches, if you love the clean water we have to drink, then we really need everyone’s help,” said Jackson in an interview with Kiss FM.
Jackson says the board is also lobbying the province and feds for more protection measures and funding.
