Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: Rapid degradation of the world’s large lakes

Lake Superior

Large lakes account for nearly 90% of the surface area and volume of the world’s lakes. They are critical sources of freshwater supply for present and future generations, and a key driver for economic development and social wellbeing.

Despite their importance, large lakes are degrading rapidly due to rising pressure from humans and climate change. They face a growing list of serious threats and need to be protected not only for our generation, but for generations to come.

An international group of aquatic researchers and scientists, including Lake Futures researchers Serghei Bocaniov, Zobia Jawed, and Gail Krantzberg, summarize these threats and call for increased conservation efforts and improved management for the world's large lakes.
