“From my childhood, my joy was to explore the lakes in the Canadian northland.
The spirit of those lakes was, and still is, the common loon. They sometimes
assemble in quite large numbers before their southward flight. To millions of people,
loons symbolize the clean, remote wilderness.

It is partly the familiar sight of the elegant silhouette, but mainly the haunting
cry. Now, of course, lakes like this one are threatened by acid rain, the fish
population is declining as the acidity rises. In time, there will be no food for
the loons, and our lake will be dead. Let us hope that powerful forces will
come to the rescue in time.”
