Save the Loon and the Great Lakes Too!

Climate change is here to stay and our national parks are showing signs of its affects, according to a report by the National Parks Conservation Association.

Climate Change: A Survival Guide for a Warming World urges the Federal Government to begin to address the affects of climate change in order to mitigate the damage to our landscape and preserve wildlife.

The Great Lakes have begun to show signs of suffering as well a prime example is the die off of massive death toll of the loons.  The birds consume a toxic cocktail each time they eat the gobi which has dined on a specific algae bloom strengthened by invasive species and warming tempertures, the result: food poisoning.

The report is full of great information and fantastic photography. It would be great reading material for the beach!
