Endangered Snails Sent Home to Tahiti From Detroit Zoo

The Detroit zoo said on Tuesday, a hundred endangered snails are on their way to Tahiti to restore a species that became extinct in the wild.
The zoo has been working for decades to preserve the tiny Partula nodosa snail, one of several species driven out of their native south Pacific habitat by efforts to control another invasive snail species that went awry.
