Tell Congress: Protect the Great Lakes from Invasive Species

Tell Federal & State Officials: We Need a Real Emergency Action Plan to Stop Asian Carp, Not Flow Charts
Young Asian carp are rapidly advancing toward Lake Michigan. That means federal and state officials must act fast to keep them out of the Great Lakes. Unfortunately, the new contingency plan lacks an actual plan. Tell officials we need a real plan!
Tell Your Senators: Support Long-Term Great Lakes Restoration Funding
Despite a record of success, the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative comes up for renewal each year in Congress and is subject to budgetary whims. Tell your senators to support a five-year funding commitment to bolster this critical Great Lakes program.
