Migratory Bird Management
Alaska Loon and Grebe Working Group is a collection of biologists, managers, and
enthusiasts interested in working together to elevate the status of loons and
grebes in Alaska. The Working Group was first convened in December 1997 and has met intermittently since then. The goals of the Alaska Loon and Grebe Working Group
- Facilitate exchange of information among biologists, managers,
and the public
- Identify conservation and management issues faced by Alaska's
loons and grebes
- Review and identify gaps in knowledge of loon and grebe
distributions, status, and ecology
- Facilitate collaborative projects
among agencies and others.
The Alaska Loon
Working Group Project Directory (275kb, pdf) concerning loons in Alaska was
completed in March 2000. The directory contains brief summaries of ongoing, recently
completed and planned projects focus upon loons and grebes throughout the state.
The directory also includes a summary of our current knowledge on the status of
Alaska's loon populations and a bibliography of loons in Alaska.
