ENGAGING YOUTH THROUGH THE ASIAN CARP CANADA PROGRAM

Asian Carp

 

Asian Carp Canada launched a Spot the Difference campaign this past August to show the dramatic impacts that could result if Asian Carp became established in the Great Lakes. Three Canadian magazines with national distribution will print a puzzle that asks the reader to “spot the differences” in a typical Canadian waterscape before and after an Asian carp invasion. 

You can play too! The puzzles can be found in Owl Magazine’s September Learning Edition, Explore Magazine after September 8th, and Outdoor Canada Magazine after October 26th.

Answer keys are available on www.asiancarp.ca.

Asian Carp Innovative Solutions Competition 

Registration is open for the Asian Carp Innovative Solutions Competition, to be held on March 5, 2016 at the University of Toronto Scarborough. This competition is open to post-secondary students (individually or in teams) who have an idea on how to prevent or manage an Asian carp invasions. The goals are to: increase knowledge about Asian carps prevention efforts, provide students with an opportunity to showcase their critical thinking skills, and give them an opportunity to develop an idea that might be instrumental in the prevention, management or elimination of Asian carps in the Great Lakes. The event will be used to develop ideas that will inform technology and policy in the future and gain the important and fresh perspective from a younger generation.
