Please Sign the Petition and Spread the Word!

In December, 2009, testing found that Asian carp had found their way up the Illinois River and within a few miles of Lake Michigan. Michigan Attorney General, Mike Cox, filed suit against the State of illinois and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to close the locks that control this waterway and prevent entrance of Asian carp into Lake Michigan. Other states bordering the Great Lakes, plus the Province of Ontario have joined the suit. So far, the Obama administration and the State of Illinois have refused to close the locks to protect Lake Michigan and the entire Great Lakes system.

Haven't we had enough of invasive species threatening the most valuable resource of the area- the Great Lakes? Please, go to www.StopAsianCarp.com and sign the e-petition. It will be presented to President Obama.
