Save Lake Erie: Take the water pledge
Lake Erie is a global treasure – it provides drinking water for millions of people, and supports a billion dollar economy and a truly remarkable ecosystem. And it needs our help.
Yet, there are not enough resources going towards protecting and restoring it. We need more dedicated provincial and federal funding to make sure this body of water is protected for current and future generations.
Sadly, right now, the lake is under threat due to ever increasing large, and sometimes toxic, algal blooms that are killing fish and making the water unswimmable and undrinkable to humans.
What is causing the blooms? Too much phosphorus getting into the water.
One source of phosphorus is run-off pollution from agricultural lands. Action is needed to reduce the amount of phosphorus getting into the lakes.
