The concept of One Health recognizes that human, environmental, and animal health are all connected. Mark Pokras, DVM, and Brooke Hafford MacDonald, MS, will explore the concept of common loons as a “sentinel species” for evaluating the health of our aquatic environments. This talk will discuss current and future studies, and implications for conservation. This will be an interactive presentation that will encourage active audience discussion.
Mark Pokras is Associate Professor Emeritus at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, Tufts University. Brooke Hafford MacDonald is the LakeSmart Program Manager for Maine Lakes Society and a Contract Biologist for Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
