Speak Out to Stop Invasive Zebra Mussels

a cluster of zebra mussels on a shore.

Invasive species like zebra mussels have devastated native fish in the Great Lakes and throughout our nation's waterways. The small, sharp mussels were brought to the Great Lakes by ocean-going ships, and these same ships are still allowed to give invasive species a "free ride" in the water they carry in their ballast tanks from across the globe to the Great Lakes to almost all waters across the U.S.

Although the Environmental Protection Agency has a new proposal for the water discharged from commercial vessels' ballast tanks, it is not strong enough to protect the Great Lakes and our nation’s waters from new invasive species.

Tell the Environmental Protection Agency to stop new invasive species before it is too late for our Great Lakes and nation’s wildlife.
