Measuring helps us better understand the environment along Georgian Bay. It helps to focus our efforts where they are needed most. It also allows us to identify healthy and ecologically important areas that require protection or enhancement. While Georgian Bay is considered to be in good condition compared to the other Great Lakes, it is still subject to pressures from water levels, invasive species, development and other human influences.
We have found that although good environmental research has begun, there is a need for more research and monitoring.
Look for stewardship programs that you can do with your family and your neighbours. We all live, work or play in beautiful Georgian Bay. Lets protect it for future generations.

From the Severn River up to Killarney and McGregor Bay, this region contains an important diversity of habitats including rocky shorelines, coastal wetlands, sand beaches, and distant outer islands, each of which support an amazing array of species.
While we might know how many species of birds, fish, mammals, reptiles and amphibians there are, there are still many things we dont know about the health of Georgian Bay. Just like a doctor who takes the vital signs of their patient, we want to understand which things are in good condition and where there are symptoms of a problem.
Georgian Bay is diverse. Conditions in near shore areas are often very different from conditions around the outer islands. Southern Georgian Bay is again quite different from the northern parts. An indicator is a certain feature of the environment that is able to give us signs whether the environment is healthy and when it is changing.
For example, in this report, measuring phosphorus helps to tell a story about water quality. Past results can be compared to the present and future, to see trends. They can tell us if things are things getting worse, getting better, or staying the same.
Georgian Bay is big. Results for this report were divided into 10 regions. To find your community on the map, see page Georgian Bay needs more research. There are many cases where the information that we need does not exist - data has not been collected through government, university, or community research and monitoring programs.
These gaps in environmental research suggest that more monitoring needs to be done, by agencies and organizations, like Georgian Bay Forever, and involving volunteers like you!Discuss: Petz Rescue: Endangered Paradise (DS) Sign in to comment.
