Preserving and Protecting Two Beloved New Hampshire Species: Moose and Loons

We couldn't have a Week of Summer Favorites without including moose and loons!  For many Granite Staters, these creatures symbolize what makes our wild places special, but both face threats that are reducing their numbers. We'll discuss these threats, and ongoing efforts to support these two beloved N.H. animals.

This show originally aired on August 1, 2017.

  • Harry Vogel - Director of the Loon Preservation Committee in New Hampshire.
