Protect the Great Lakes
ALL HANDS ON DECK
Science and Our Great Lakes Petition to Elected Officials
The Great Lakes suffer from serious threats such as toxic pollutants, sewer overflows, invasive species, water level reduction and contaminated sediment. These dangerous problems have led to illness that harm people, algal blooms, record beach closings and fish consumption advisories, habitat loss and billions of dollars in economic damage.
The best chance of ensuring our Great Lakes are healthy is to base decision about their protection and restoration on unbiased science. When protection and restoration decisions are made that are not based in unbiased science we risk harming our Great Lakes ecosystem.
The signers of this petition ask that you commit to using unbiased science in decision making about Great Lakes protection and restoration efforts.
