Making Waves: Battle for the Great Lakes is a two-part documentary about aquatic invasive species in the Great Lakes and the efforts underway to control and prevent them. Narrated by Bill Kurtis.
"Things Will Never be the Same," the first episode of the two-part series, chronicles the devastating changes in the Great Lakes ecosystem brought about by invasive species through the 1990s. Considered one of the worst threats to the Great Lakes today, invasive species have a long history of destruction in the region. The program takes viewers below the surface for an up-close and personal look at some of the worst invaders plaguing the lakes, and follows researchers working on the front lines to keep them at bay.
Episode 1 will air again at 4 a.m. on Monday, April 2.
Episode 2 will air at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 8.
