812UINR has teamed up with Natural Resource Officers (NROs) from Eskasoni, Waycobah, and Membertou to collect data on water temperature, salinity, oxygen, and secchi disk readings around the waters of Unama’ki this spring. These measurements will be taken from many different areas in the Lakes and the Mira River to address a number of concerns related to climate change and its impact on the state and composition of the waters’ plants and animals, especially oyster population and transmission of MSX disease. A central database will be established at UINR to house this information.
