TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 29, 2015) - WWF-Canada is assessing the health of and threats to all of our country's watersheds. We have reached the 50 per cent mark and on July 7 we will launch a new website, WATERSHEDREPORTS.WWF.CA

Highlights of the technical briefing include:

  • Learning how to find your watershed and determine what the main threats to its health are using our new web tools
  • Learn about the health of 12 watersheds, including the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence watersheds
  • Learn what role bugs have to play in determining the health of any river
  • Gain a deeper understanding of habitat fragmentation and how it is affecting fish

Members of the media are invited to join the virtual press briefing to ask technical questions of James Snider, VP Freshwater, and David Miller, WWF-Canada's President and CEO, via Google Hangouts on Air. You must have a Gmail account with Google+ enabled.

We can accommodate five members of the media via video and many more remote participants, who will be able to listen and type in questions. Please RSVP here and we will send a video link on the day of the briefing for those who request it.
