My response and comments so far
My husband and I, had plans to be here this weekend: Great Gull Island off of the CT coast
|Great Gull Island, AMNH trip, Summer 2006|
Sandy damaged their dock and we were going to land on the beach via a dinky. Unfortunately because of rough seas yesterday, we could not land and had to turn around.
The island is managed by legendary ornithologist Helen Hays of the American Museum of Natural History and is a tern sanctuary she has been taking care of since 1969. She welcomes volunteers of all ages and backgrounds every year as well as terns by the tens of thousands every season. You have to see it to believe it !
I first visited the island in 2006 on a members' trip of the AMNH and fell in love forever !
