Project Term:

2011 - 2012

The Loon Preservation Committee (LPC) was created in 1975 because of concerns about dramatic declines in New Hampshire’s loon population. The Committee consists of a network of dedicated individuals who work to further the organization’s mission of restoring and maintaining a viable population of loons throughout New Hampshire; monitoring the health and productivity of loons and loon populations as sentinels of environmental quality; and promoting a greater understanding of loons and the natural world. Today, LPC houses the most comprehensive database of loon populations and productivity statistics in the world, and our management activities have more than tripled New Hampshire’s loon population, despite dramatic increases in shoreline development and human use of lakes.
