Fall 2014 Newsletter

Our 2014 field season is all wrapped up! Thanks to everyone for a great 25th season of research, monitoring, conservation and education! 
Highlights of this past season:

  • We welcomed 19 volunteers and 104 visitors to the island including 34 students from local schools
  • Ancient Murrelet chick departures were slightly lower than last season, but comparable to the 2 previous years
  • No raccoons were detected on the island and we expanded our monitoring program to include other islands in LB
  • We conducted Black Oystercatcher surveys in both Laskeek Bay and in Gwaii Haanas.
