“Nab the Aquatic Invaders! Be a Sea Grant Super Sleuth” Web site was developed through a National Strategic Initiatives Grant sponsored by the National Sea Grant College Program in NOAA. Funding was granted to the Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant College Program, the Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute and New York Sea Grant Institute. These programs collaborated with other education and outreach staff members of the seven Great Lakes Sea Grant programs to develop this national education site on aquatic invasive species.
