Murdoch University researchers are investigating a fres water mussel named Westralunio carteri.
The website "MusselWatch" was designed by Murdoch University researchers and community partners (SERCUL) to assist in the collection of species distributional information as well as an educational tool to create awareness about W. carteri.

They are encouraging the community to report their sightings of the mussels online. They will use the information provided to create a database of mussel sites, which will then be used to map the species distribution throughout south-western WA.

Go to the following website to learn more about the mussel and/or to report your sighting.http://www.musselwatchwa.com/
