A virtual illustrated lecture by wildlife research biologist, Lucas Savoy.

Lucas Savoy is the Loon Program Director at the Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI), a Maine-based non-profit organization that focuses on wildlife conservation. Along with partnering organizations, BRI wildlife biologists have developed a technique to rear Common Loon chicks and safely transport them for release in areas of southern New England where loons have been removed from the landscape for more than 100 years. The multi-year project has already achieved exciting milestone moments and the future for successful loon restoration is bright.
