Canada-Ontario Agreement on Great Lakes: habitat and species

Priority - protecting habitat and species

This priority focuses on restoring, protecting and conserving the natural habitats and biodiversity of the Great Lakes. Thriving habitats and native fish and wildlife communities contribute to the social and economic vitality of the Great Lakes basin. Unfortunately, many human activities put pressures on the ecosystem and result in the loss or degradation of habitats, fragmentation of natural systems, reductions in the health and abundance of native species, and threats from invasive species. To address these issues, this priority includes annexes on aquatic invasive species (AIS) and habitat and species.
