A Look at Local Loons
The Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) recently held an event at the library entitled: “A Look at Local Loons.” The presenter was former Westborough resident Dr. Mark Pokras, a zoo and wildlife veterinarian at Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Pokras discussed his experiences and lessons learned from his work studying loons and the threats they face. “Learning from Loons” is an example of conservation linking animal, human & ecosystem health. Dr. Pokras’s research and expertise is in how environmental contaminants such as lead affect wildlife species and conservation medicine. Watch the full presentation here.
