The mission of the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation is to promote the conservation of Common Loons (Gavia immer) in and beyond New York’s Adirondack Park.
Our work merges the worlds of scientific research, outreach, education, and public participation. The results of our research, education programs, and conservation/management efforts are utilized by wildlife managers and other decision makers, as well as the general public, to ensure that Common Loons remain an integral and vital part of New York’s wildlife heritage, and that their haunting calls continue to echo across Adirondack lakes for generations to come.
Adirondack Loon Research: Mercury, Migration, Health, Nesting Success, Population Trends (Annual Loon Census), and more!
Conservation and Management: Threats to loons, Fishing line Recycling Program, Loon Nest protection, Shoreline Guidelines
Education and Outreach: The Adirondack Tremolo newsletter, Presentations, School Curricula, Signage, Internships, Articles & reports
