State and Tribal Habitat/Wetlands Initiative Habitat/Species Workshops 2008-2009

Under the auspices of the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration and its Habitat-Species Work Group, the Great Lakes Commission conducted nine one-day workshops across the Great Lakes region, one in each of the eight Great Lakes states and one dedicated to the tribal communities within the U.S. drainage basin to the lakes. These workshops were conducted between December 2008 and March 2009 to facilitate dialogue between federal and state agencies, cities and municipalities, tribes and non-governmental organizations on collaborative approaches toward ecological conservation, protection, restoration and remediation. Funding to conduct these workshops was provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The workshops had a particular focus on:
  1. promoting development of a region-wide web-based habitat/species project repository and linked database on available funding / technical assistance sources;
  2. identification of systemic challenges that impede restoration progress; and
  3. identification of innovative partnerships and approaches for meeting local, state, tribal and regional ecological restoration goals.

Beach Project Initiative

The Great Lakes Regional Collaboration (GLRC) identifies coastal health as a challenge recognizing the significance of beaches to the economic well-being, health and quality of life of the region’s citizens. Contamination leading to beach advisories continues to be a concern in the Basin. The GLRC calls for identification of sources of contamination and remediation. Sanitary surveys and predictive modeling are a means to achieve these goals.

Great Lakes Botulism Type E Coordination and Response Initiative

Botulism is now implicated in thousands of bird, fish, and amphibian mortalities across the Great Lakes each year. Infected carcasses wash ashore and pose a threat to wildlife and pets. The exact mechanism causing this recent resurgence remains unknown. Addressing this problem is beyond the capability of any single agency/organization. A variety of agencies are working on aspects of the issue from their respective missions/authorities, but we lack an ongoing method for coordinating these efforts. The Coastal Health section of the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration Strategy to Restore and Protect the Great Lakes recommends “Research to clarify sources and transport of biotoxins (i.e., botulism) through foodweb.” The Great Lakes Botulism Type E Coordination and Response Initiative is a response to this recommendation.
