Loon Zoom Presented by the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation

The Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation is providing monthly online “Loon Zoom” presentations about loon behavior, vocalizations, wildlife pathology, and research. Five presentations will be offered at 7:00 pm on the second Tuesday of the month from December to April.

“We are pleased to offer these fun and engaging online presentations while waiting for spring and the return of loons to Adirondack lakes,” said Dr. Nina Schoch, Executive Director of the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation.

The presentations will include: 

  • 1/13/22: Loon CSI: Why Do Loons Die?:  Dr. Mark Pokras, a retired wildlife rehabilitator from Tufts Wildlife Clinic, will reveal the pathology work that occurs behind the scenes after a loon dies to determine the cause of death. 

 

 

  • 3/10/22: Loon Lessons: Dr. Jim Paruk is a Professor of Biology at St. Joseph's College, in Maine, and has been studying Common Loons across North America for the past 28 years. Dr. Paruk will talk about his new book, Loon Lessons, and his evolutionary approach to understanding their behavior and life history strategy.

 

  • 4/14/22: Adirondack Loon Protection Tools: Jennifer Denny, Education Coordinator for Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation, will discuss ongoing loon conservation and research projects in the Adirondacks. Join Jen to learn how to become involved with the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation.
