Il-Qabru, which is the native name of the Maltese Freshwater Crab, is an endemic and endangered Freshwater Crab found on the islands of Malta and Gozo. This rare crab is at risk of extinction as it only has two remaining strong populations. The clip shows a public survey about this crab species to have a look at how much the local people know about their national invertebrate. Then an interview with Nature Trust takes place about the threats the crabs face, as well as the breeding programme that they have just started in order to save our National invertebrate, the Maltese Freshwater Crab.
