    About This Project

    Recently, we have documented malaria parasites killing Common Loons, an iconic species of the northern wilderness experiencing steep population declines. Our previous studies over thirty years have showed Common Loons to be free of malaria parasite infection. The threat of this newly emerging disease, malaria, in Common Loons is unknown. Our team will study the extent and impact of malaria infection in loons over time, including the prevalence of disease and death.
