    How To Help a Loon In Trouble

    common-loon-fishing-lineCommon Loons sometimes find themselves in uncommon situations. They might land on wet roads or small ponds lacking a suitable “water runway” for takeoff. Loons sometimes ingest fishing lures and line. Or they might be caught on frozen ponds in early and mid winter.

    As leader of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, VCE rescues loons in distress. Often with help from citizen naturalists, we get loons back on the water or in the air.
