Shallow Lakes

Tens of thousands of shallow lakes are distributed across the Arctic Network. Although small, these ecosystems serve a diverse array of ecological functions ranging from flood protection, groundwater recharge, and water purification to providing prime habitat to moose, waterfowl and furbearers. Because they are so productive and diverse, shallow lakes are important to the people who hunt and trap within the park boundaries. They are also important indicators of the health and integrity of the natural environment. Many scientists believe that shallow lakes are disappearing throughout Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. Loss of these important habitats will have important effects on water quality, water storage and wildlife habitat.
