The Great Lakes Are Home or More Than 3,500 Plant And Animal Species
"From sand dunes to shorelines views, the Great Lakes are among the world’s most precious natural resources. If you live in the Great Lakes basin, you’re one of the 40 million people who depend on the lakes for drinking water, employment and recreation. More than 3,500 plant and animal species—some found nowhere else on the planet—also call the region home. By meeting our animal neighbors and understanding the environmental issues that affect them, we can help protect the Great Lakes for wildlife and people." -Shed Aquarium
