Greetings Friends and Colleagues,

Today, we published the video and short essay: Quaggas! Lake Michigan's Ecosystem Distruptors. Based on an interview with freshwater ecologist and diver, Dr. Harvey Bootsma, this narrative clearly describes how the ecosystem of Lake Michigan had been fundamentally changed over the last 15 years or so. The video also shows us why we can expect even more change.

This video essay raises many questions about the future of Lake Michigan as a recreational and fishery resource. Please watch!

And when you can find a minute, please encourage your organizational members, board members, friends and family to watch this video too.

Thank you.
