The Great Lakes Project is focused on the protection, restoration and maintenance of the region’s most critical natural systems while safeguarding the lakes from their most significant threats, such as aquatic invasive species.
The Nature Conservancy’s Great Lakes Project has identified six priority areas to build strategic success:
- Aquatic Invasive Species
- Climate Change Adaptation
- Coastal Systems
- Native Fisheries
- Northern Forests
