Looking back to a 2019 episode about blue-green algae. Blooms of that toxic cyanobacteria are harmful to people and pets—and unfortunately, they’re becoming more of a reality in New Mexico’s lakes and reservoirs, even in northern New Mexico. As we learn in this episode, as the climate continues to warm, it’s more important than ever for water managers and others to work together on the issue.
