Knocking on the Great Lakes Door
An aquatic invasive species that was first found in North America in the 1940’s, Eurasian watermilfoil has spread to almost every state, where it grows into thick mats that can make lakes impenetrable for boats and swimmers. Milfoil can make it impossible for native plants to grow, affecting fish and wildlife.

A study conducted this year for The Nature Conservancy found that aquatic invasive species cost the Great Lakes region significantly more than $100 million a year. Lake County, Ill., has 260 lakes and 75% of them have invasive species. The Greats Lakes are home to more than 180 invasive species and 10 more are "knocking on the door," says David Hamilton, a senior policy director for The Nature Conservancy. Of those species, 29 are threats to the Mississippi River basin.

Weed Clearing in Burma - Inle Lake, a freshwater lake in the Nyaungshwe Township of Taunggyi District of Shan State is the second largest lake in Myanmar. It has an estimated surface area of 44.9 square miles. Photographer Gavin Burnett caught an image of two girls collecting weeds and debris from the shallow waters on Inle Lake. The weeds are used as compost on floating vegetable farms that are built on island of floating water hyacinths.
