Video details Great Lakes governors’ protection efforts
The fund has committed more than $63.9 million to 245 projects to advance conservation, produce sustainable technologies and restore ecosystems in an economically viable way.
It was endowed in 1989 by former Great Lakes governors with an $81 million contribution of public funds.
About $4 million a year is spent on projects, which are funded by the interest off the endowment, said Amy Elledge, communications director for the fund.
Featured projects include scientists designing ballast filters and policy experts discussing ways to make sustainability marketable.
