Great Lakes

Healthy Coasts

The Great Lakes' coastal and nearshore areas are rich in wildlife species and productivity, but are also heavily used by people for transportation, shipping, and recreation. The Conservancy is restoring these essential habitats by managing the impacts of invasive species in our wetlands and dunes; protecting and restoring coastline habitat for ecological health, migratory birds, and spawning fish; convening partners to pursue effective coastal management; and influencing and informing coastal policies.
