Balance is essential to any conservation effort. If you’ve noticed fewer
loons at your lake over the past few years, you may be able to help by
improving their habitat. One
option is to build an artificial nesting platform (ANP), a floating
platform that you anchor in your lake. But before you do, it’s important
to go through the proper channels. Some loon lovers have acquired
permits to build ANPs, but experts recommend that your first approach is
more hands-off than you might expect.
