Earlier this year, the Great Lakes were named the first freshwater “Hope Spot” − special places around the world that are recognized as critical to the health of the ocean.
Hope Spots are nominated by local organizations, businesses and conservationists and then chosen by Mission Blue, a conservation nonprofit focused on protecting the oceans. The Great Lakes were nominated by the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.
