Save My Lake Video

We liked this video. It encouraged us to help heal Lake Winnipeg!

 

Milo: Algae is attacking the lake. It makes me feel like I’m sick, the algae. The bird was stuck in the algae. Deadly impacts. Choking Lake Erie.

 

Cohen: 

It’s a big problem because fishers are having a really, really hard time because their nets are getting clogged up with algae.


Breann:

Algae blooms are starting to grow. It’s food for the fish. Not good for us.

ACTION STEPS (from the kids):
1. Don’t use any [phosphorus] detergents and don’t use anything that has harmful chemicals in it.
2. Find better ways to use phosphorus based fertilizers or use ones that are better for the lake.
