In 2013, BRI and The Ricketts Conservation Foundation (RCF) worked together to initiate the largest conservation study for the Common Loon, a key bioindicator of aquatic integrity for lakes and near shore marine ecosystems across North America. This scientific initiative provides an opportunity to identify major threats to loons and to create solutions that strengthen current populations and restore loons to their former breeding range.
The Restore the Call initiative encompasses three major components including population assessments, outreach and conservation efforts, and research and restoration studies. These components will be carried out in a number of individual projects within the three main focal regions.
