Healthy wetlands are essential to the survival of ecosystems and humans, providing critical services such as attenuating floods and purifying water. Wetlands are disappearing rapidly in the U.S. and around the world. Effective protection and restoration of wetlands requires careful communication between landowners, regulators and scientists.

Photo of a baby lake sturgeon cradled in a child's hand.

A baby lake sturgeon is small enough to be cradled in a child's hand. However, lake sturgeon can grow to over eight feet in length and weigh up to 800 pounds, and they can attain ages of up to 100 years old. Destruction of food sources, invasive species and dam construction along spawning rivers have led to lake sturgeon being listed as a statewide threatened species in Michigan.
