Thread subject: Loon tracking update
Name Date Message
Shelley 07/29/10 07:06 pm I hadn't checked into Larry's blog since I last posted my concerns/feelings about satellite tracking but I thought I'd go check in tonight to see if there are any updates. It appears that the latest blog entry is a week old but in any case, he has shed some light on some of the other reasons for the satellites:

Larry's Loon Blog

I had not known about the botulism issue and after reading the release, I understand why they would want to be able to try and track the movements of both the loons and the fish they eat. I don't know why this lesson -- the food chain lesson -- is so difficult for people to understand. It's been said before but apparently, it can't be said often enough: when one thing is affected, everything is affected. That is a fact of life and especially, a fact of nature. We humans are really slow learners...

Celeste 07/29/10 08:41 pm There is nothing more beautiful when we are in Canada is hearing the haunting sound of the loons in the early morning, and the evening. To know that something like this is happening is really heartbreaking, as if wildlife doesn't have enough to contend with.
