BRI news stories have appeared in many regional, national, and international news outlets. These stories help promote awareness of our work but also promote the general issues of conservation biology and the need to continue research in wildlife health and its implications to human health.

BRI's researchers are available to talk to journalists and provide expert information on both the work we do and the broader topics of their expertise.

BRI's Loon Research Highlighted on CBS Evening News

Saving Loons from a Shrinking Range

In the early 1900s, loons nested as far south as Illinois and Pennsylvania. But since then, their range has steadily shrunk. If southern lakes continue to warm, the fish loons feed on could die, sending the birds farther north for food. But in Minnesota, scientists are attempting to return loon chicks to their traditional southern nesting sites.

Dean Reynolds reports.
