Shedd to increase efforts at Great Lakes conservation

CHICAGO Chicago's Shedd Aquarium announced today it will intensify its efforts to draw attention to the value and vulnerability of the Great Lakes ecosystem.

Shedd officials say the aquarium will partner with Biodiversity Project to launch an awareness campaign in Chicago called "Great Lakes Forever."

Aquarium president Ted Beattie says Shedd's exhibits, public programs and special events will increasingly focus on Lake Michigan and the other Great Lakes. He says the intent is to get people thinking and talking about the five bodies of water that provides water, recreation and food to 37 (m) million people.

Beattie says the aquarium plans to install a invasive species exhibit later this year to educate visitors about the damage to the Great Lakes invasive species cause, including the depletion and extinction of native fish.
