LIMNOLOGY - WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
MATCHING GIFT AVAILABLE: Thanks to anonymous donors, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar -- up to $4,000 -- during Day of the Badger.
Freshwater is the essence of life and Earth’s most vital resource. Yet we are in the midst of a freshwater crisis. Freshwater ecosystems are threatened by climate change, declining fisheries, invasive species, and pollution. Addressing these emerging challenges requires cutting-edge science and investment in the next generation of limnologists and problem solvers.
The Center for Limnology is a global leader in freshwater science. We conduct research across Wisconsin and the world that endeavors to understand changes to our environment, find solutions to these important problems and help confront these challenges head on. Support from donors like you helps keep the Center for Limnology at the forefront of these efforts.
Your support helps us conduct crucially important science and inspires training for the next generation of researchers, educators and leaders. It also allows us to share what we learn with the general public, elected officials, and resource managers to innovate solutions to the problems facing our freshwater resources. The tradition of world-class research in limnology began right here at UW–Madison in 1875 and continues today at Hasler Lab in Madison and Trout Lake Station in Vilas County.
Your donation on Day of the Badger will have double the impact due to a matching gift from our generous supporters.
