Every eight months, on average, a new invasive species enters the Great Lakes.
Making Waves: Battle for the Great Lakes is a one hour documentary about the effects of aquatic invasive species in the Great Lakes and the efforts under way to control and prevent them. The film will chronicle the devastating transformation of the Great Lakes ecosystem over the last two centuries, teaching viewers about the diversity of life in the Lakes, and how they’re affected by invasive species. Viewers will learn about the battles raging both above and below the surface as the film follows researchers working on the front lines to combat, control and prevent invasive species and to protect and restore native species.
Making Waves: Battle for the Great Lakes is produced by Great Lakes Media, with Emmy-nominated supervising producer Kurtis Productions.
