Swimming for loons
Seven Squam Lake swimmers to raise funds to aid loons
This 8th annual swim, set for Friday, will raise funds for the Loon Preservation Committee's Squam Lake Loon Initiative, according to Senior Biologist/Executive Director Harry Vogel of the Loon Preservation Committee in Moultonborough.
According to Vogel, Squam Lake has seen a dramatic decrease in the number of loon pairs since 2005, and an average of fewer than three loon chicks raised per year, not nearly enough to maintain the loon population. Three adults banded in previous years did not survive to return to the lake this summer, and loons on Squam have only hatched two chicks so far this season.
