On the Current Cover of the Journal of Great Lakes Research
The cover photo shows the southernmost tip of Point Pelee National Park and mainland Canada. The tip and the park's unique flora and fauna attract tens of thousands of visitors every year, contributing to the regional economy. Over the last few decades, the park's shorelines have exhibited net retreat and consequently the park has diminished in area. Having a reliable projection for future shoreline positions of Point Pelee is vital to developing management strategies for the sustainability of the park's ecosystem and the park's main attractions, including the tip area. BaMasoud and Byrne (this issue) examine the different methods commonly used to project the park's future shorelines.
