Necropsies - $1,500
Wildlife veterinarians will conduct loon necropsies that will be simulcast for the entire loon scientific community as well as for educational purposes. The video, which will feature your Company name and logo, will be available online for future reference.
As a sponsor, you may want to help bring loon biologists from across the globe to Portland. Your donation of $2,000 will provide airfare, lodging, and registration fees for researchers from:
This support will help to enhance the breadth and depth of scientific meetings and public events during the Symposium, as researchers share knowledge and experiences working with all five loon species. Below is an example of a researcher we would love to attend:
Diana Solovyeya - Russia (pictured to the left holding a Yellow-billed Loon)
Diana conducts loon surveys in Western Chukotka, a key breeding area of four loon species in Russia. Her research includes a multi-year study of the breeding biology of these four species, including nesting and pair densities, breeding chronology, and nest success. Diana has also estimated the amount of Yellow-billed Loon bycatch in fishing nets.
There are plenty of ways you can get involved to help make this a great event! No gift or act of service is too small; we hope to engage the entire community.
Here are some examples of ways to help out:
