The Great Lakes Ecoregional Plan identifies all native species, natural communities and aquatic systems characteristic of the Great Lakes region and outlines how many of and where these elements of biodiversity need to be protected over the long term. In addition, this plan identifies broad-scale threats to Great Lakes biodiversity and begins to develop strategies to address these threats. This plan was replaced by the Binational Great Lakes Biodiversity Conservation Strategies.
Sharing information resources on coastal wetlands helps foster collaborative and more strategic conservation efforts.
There are many existing partnerships, plans, reports, training materials, decision tools and other valuable information resources that can help inform strategic decision making to protect and restore Great Lakes coastal wetlands. On this page we bring these information resources together with brief descriptions and direct links to help you quickly find those resources that meet your individual needs.
