Our researcher Justine Vandendorpe went to the Yamal Peninsula (northwest Siberia, Russia) from 5 to 30 June 2017. She joined a research group studying the decline of the long-tailed duck population. These waterfowls feed on benthic animals such as the mud snail genus Ecrobia that Justine studies. It was an opportunity for this young researcher to look for the mud snail in the Arctic as Ecrobia is suspected to have traveled between Eurasia and North America through the Arctic Ocean. Justine had the chance to discuss that with two local television crews.
