Great Lakes Symposium - Schiefer presentation

Publication Date: 
April 8, 2011

Karl Schiefer, a consulting Aquatic Biologist, gave this presentation "Great Lakes Ecosystems: Do We Value Them?" at our Port Huron event.

Schiefer says our European value system (an anthorpocentric world-view with an emphasis on advanced technology) dominates our management of the Great Lakes. This has a huge impact on the environment as compared to the First Nations that coexisted with the resource for millenium without depleting it.
