Olympic Mudminnow Information System: Supporting public awareness and conservation of Washington State’s only endemic species
Julian Olden, University of Washington
This project is a continuation of 2017 and 2018 projects focused on improving scientific understanding of the Olympic mudminnow, and building a community of practice to enhance their conservation. Previous accomplishments include a synthesis of existing mudminnow population data and development of a state-wide conservation assessment. This phase of the work will focus on developing the Olympic Mudminnow Information System (OMIS) – an open-access, centralized, online information hub for wildlife managers, researchers, policy makers and the public.
