OUR MAIN CONCERNS

CAFC's main concerns are aligned with the identified threats within the  Lake Huron Lake Management Plan for 2017-2021

NUTRIENT POLLUTION

Excessive nutrient runoff from nonpoint sources is significantly degrading water quality in all the Great Lakes, with the exception of Lake Superior.

CHEMICAL CONTAMINENTS

It’s not just pesticides, as scientists are finding worrying levels of pharmaceutically active compounds such as anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, anti-epileptics, and beta blockers in lake water. 

BIODIVERSITY

The diversity of life on Earth — biodiversity — provides us with a range of benefits and underpins essential ecosystems services. 

CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS

From hiking to swimming, sipping to shipping, shifting weather patterns are changing lives in this province.

INVASIVE

SPECIES

Aquatic Invasive Species can not only affect our fisheries economy, it can also negatively impact recreational activities we enjoy to do at the cottage, such as swimming, boating, fishing, and water sports.
