PLEASE NOTE - Update:
The Steering Committee for the Symposium has decided to postpone this event.
We will send an update as soon as we can plan for a new date.
Loon researchers and conservationists, state and federal scientists, wildlife rehabilitators, lake association members, students, and others from across the Northern Hemisphere will gather to share information on a wide spectrum of topics and issues such as monitoring and management, behavior and demographics, contaminants, emerging health issues, tracking, impacts of wind power development, effects of climate change, the value of volunteer networks, rehabilitation, and more.
If you have already registered, we will send you a refund. Please note there will be a nominal administrative fee to do this.
We invite all scientists and students who study loons/divers and their habitats to submit abstracts for consideration in the oral presentation sessions or the evening poster session. Presentations on any aspect of loon biology, ecology, research techniques, conservation, and management are invited.
The new deadline for abstract submissions -- TO BE ANNOUNCED.
To submit an abstract for consideration, please fill out the Abstract Submission Form here.
This Symposium would not be possible without the contributions of sponsors and collaborators who make conservation a priority. We would like to thank our event sponsors and collaborators for their hard work and generosity!
