George Tkalych has a love for the natural world, and a special place in his heart for the northern lakes of Canada. By far one of the most stunning landscapes of the world, the Great Lakes of Canada are known for their number, size, biodiversity, and of course their beauty. This is why cleaning up and protecting the Great Lakes must then be a priority for all the people of the world.

This is something that the Canadian government has already put a large amount of resources into. This is because there has already been a lot of damage done over the years via a number of factors, lowering the level of water quality, as well as attacking the levels of wildlife.

Dr Tkalych worked with this directly as an Assistant Biologist working for the Department of Natural Resources when he was a young man. He assessed the different types of fish and their populations, undertaking Limnology on the lakes to test the water quality, as well as echo testing to map the depths. It is here that the future surgeon found his love of the natural world and the beauty that God has created.

It is wonders like this that people like George Tkalych have worked hard to study and protect, but they are being squandered by progress. Which is why we need to focus on keeping hold of the wonder that nature has afforded us and ensure that these lakes are not just cleaned up, but protected forever.
