Can Biodiversity be Saved in ‘America’s Amazon’?

Can you guess what part of the United States is being referred to as ‘America’s Amazon’?

Hint: It is the most biodiverse aquatic region of the country

Don’t feel bad if you don’t know. We’re betting you are not alone since biodiversity is the last thing many think of when they think of … Alabama.

“Alabama’s Mobil”e River basin has the most aquatic biodiversity in the country. But we’re in danger of losing it before we even know what’s there”

Fortunately, environmental journalist, Ben Raines, has written a new book on the topic that will hopefully raise awareness of this important habitat.
