Site Name:Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program
Site URL:http://www.bsc-eoc.org/volunteer/glmmp/index.jsp?targetpg=glmmpfrog&lang=EN
Description: The Great Lakes ecosystem of North America is the largest system of fresh surface water on earth and provides valuable services ranging from clean drinking water sources to wildlife viewing. Several of these services depend on the presence of vigorous, healthy wetlands - both along the coastline and in interior areas. Many of these wetlands have been lost through draining or filling, degraded by pollution inputs, or altered by invading plants and animals. Among wetland types, marshes (those dominated by emergent plants like cattail, sedges, or bulrush) are especially important habitat for a wide array of wildlife species.

It makes use of newly available, simple internet technologies such as Google Fusion Tables to collect and present location data. In its first year of operation nearly 1100 records have been submitted, including many for a number of species at risk in this province. Initial analysis of the data has shown a range extension for the Mink Frog in southeast Manitoba, as well as other interesting records for a number of other species. The project is off to a good start, but needs to involve more people from the northern part of the province in data collection.
