LESSS Areal Extent - Point Pelee
An estimated 65% reduction in Lake Erie Sand Spit Savannas (LESSS) has occurred over the last 72 years. A land cover mapping standard is used to classify the types of landscape cover in the park and assess change over time. Both remote sensing and ground data are utilised to complete this inventory work using established protocols. Using this method, changes in LESSS area over time can be detected and evaluated.
