Have you ever wondered why a loon’s eyes are red? Why loon chicks ride on their parents’ backs? What loons are saying with those eerie calls in the night? Join biologist Harry Vogel as he talks about this unique symbol of New Hampshire’s wild lakes and its special place in the hearts of New Hampshire residents. Harry will talk about loons, challenges facing loons, and the Loon Preservation Committee’s work to safeguard New Hampshire’s threatened loon population.
Harry Vogel has been studying loons for over 30 years, as a researcher and then Project Biologist for the Canadian Lakes Loon Survey of Bird Studies Canada, then as Senior Biologist/Executive Director of the Loon Preservation Committee. He is the Chair of the Northeast Loon Study Working Group, a consortium of government and non-governmental organizations from throughout the New England States and the Canadian Maritimes working on issues affecting loons and other wildlife in the northeast.
The Loon Preservation Committee’s mission is to restore and maintain a healthy population of loons throughout New Hampshire; to monitor the health and productivity of loon populations as sentinels of environmental quality; and to promote a greater understanding of loons and the natural world.
