NAWMP Webinar Series: The Ripple Effect: Ecological services and the future of Lake Winnipeg
Dave Howerter and Nigel Simms, DU Canada

Nowhere are Canada’s water woes more evident than on the often algae-slicked shores of LakeDU Canada speakers Winnipeg. Runoff from the surrounding landscape is depositing huge amounts of phosphorous into the rivers and streams that feed the lake. The world’s 10th largest freshwater lake is in trouble. A multiphase research project to determine the impacts of wetland loss in the Broughton’s Creek watershed, which feeds into Lake Winnipeg, paints a clear but startling picture: the future of Lake Winnipeg depends on a greater understanding of wetlands and the significant role they play beyond waterfowl. Through its research and communications efforts on ecological services, Ducks Unlimited Canada is engaging political leaders, industry representatives and the public on the essential role of waterfowl habitat conservation in saving Lake Winnipeg, a precious natural resource.
