Why should we care about freshwater species?

As IUCN launches a report on the status and distribution of freshwater species in southern Africa, co-author Dr William Darwall explains the importance of fish, dragonflies and clams to humans. He speaks of his hope that developers will use the information in the report to make sure their projects, such as dams, minimize the impact on these precious species.
