World's Leading Freshwater Research Facility, the ELA, Needs YOUR Support!
The Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) is a freshwater research facility in Northwestern Ontario, Canada that has operated as a government research program for over 45 years. After the Canadian Government announced that it would no longer fund the ELA program, operations were transferred to the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) in April 2014. IISD now needs additional funding to expand ELA’s vital legacy of research so that it can continue to find effective solutions to environmental problems affecting fresh water.
Here are some of the original ways you can contribute:
- Sponsor a plankton count;
- Purchase a t-shirt proclaiming that you support the ELA;
- Sponsor an ELA Fish
- Take a Tour of the ELA
You can help keep the world’s water supplies clean and free of pollutants by contributing to vital scientific research and training at the Experimental Lakes Area.
