Gliding Glass Eel

These eels may not be made of glass, but their population is just as fragile. These animals have been devastated over the centuries by growing fishing pressure and construction of dams along rivers where they once swam in abundance. A petition to add the American eel to the endangered species list will be considered in 2015 as a critical step to protect this mysterious fish.
