Our Friends at Biodiversity Research Institute in Gorham, Maine have initiated the largest conservation study for the Common Loon, a key bioindicator of aquatic integrity for lakes and near shore marine ecosystems across North America. Their initiative provides an opportunity to identify current major threats and create solutions that strengthen current populations and restore loons to their former breeding range.
