As they wrap up their multi-month placement on Lake Superior's Porphyry Island, Ocean Bridge Direct Action participants Kelsey Herglotz and Simon Boudreault go in depth about the research work they did, the lessons they learned and the special place they called home for 2 months in this video produced by Paul Morralee of our partners on the island, the Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior. Big thanks to the entire EcoSuperior team for making this experience come true for our very talented young Ocean Bridge leaders! And thank you to all participants for your inspiring work for our ocean and waterways!
