Global Connections

Location: 1st Floor

Have you ever stopped to think about how the Great Lakes and other local lakes and streams are linked to the world’s oceans? Global water resources are connected in one magnificent system, and the actions we take here in the Northland have a ripple effect.We are part of a global environment, and water quality issues that affect our native species also impact saltwater ecosystems around the globe.

Global Connections features small, delicate ocean creatures from around the world – from jellies and anemones to pipefish and seahorses.
