Working with dozens of partner organizations in eastern Georgian Bay, the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve creates an ecosystem health report called “State of the Bay” that is issued every 5 years. Their goal is to gather the best available research about water, wetlands, fisheries, and habitats in this unique landscape, and share it with people who care about Georgian Bay.

Expert advisers help to select key indicators of ecosystem health. Measuring indicators helps us to better understand whether the environment is healthy and when it is changing. While Georgian Bay can feel like wilderness, it is subject to virtually all of the same pressures as the other Great Lakes – invasive species, climate change and development pressures. Are things getting better, getting worse, or needing more research?
