Senators Stabenow, Levin Announce Support to Stop Invasive Species

Tuesday, Oct 2, 2012

U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today announced support to help stop the spread of invasive species in the Great Lakes. Grants were awarded to Michigan State University, the Great Lakes Commission, Wayne State University and the Grand Traverse Conservation District. The grants are part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which is the largest investment in the health of our Great Lakes in two decades.

"Asian carp and other invasive species pose a grave threat to our economy and Michigan's way of life," said Stabenow. "The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative will help stop the spread of invasive species, preserving our Great Lakes for future generations and protecting hundreds of thousands of Michigan jobs."

"Invasive species are a significant threat to the health and well-being of the Great Lakes, and that makes them a threat to the health and well-being of our state," Levin said. "This funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative will help Michigan researchers lead the way in confronting this threat."

The funds will be used to help stop aquatic and land-based invasive species from accessing the Great Lakes system and its tributaries. More information about the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative can be accessed on their website at www.greatlakesrestoration.us.
