Site of the Month for September:
Canada's Aquatic Environments--->>http://www.aquatic.uoguelph.ca/
With more than 3 million lakes and the largest marine coastline of any
nation, Canadian waters provide a challenge for any synthetic effort.
This encyclopedic web site provides an overview of physical settings and
biological diversity. The site includes more than 9,000 pages of
information on aquatic animals and habitats and will soon be expanded to
include plants. Aside from sound files, photographs and illustrations,
most sections of the site are enlivened with interactive
exercises. Join a virtual birdwatching trip to the Great Lakes, take a
helicopter flight to any of Canada's National Parks or sample a polar
pond! Designed to make education fun, this site is the ultimate web
resource for those with a passion for aquatic life.

If your agency is interested in being GLIN Site of the Month, see
