Least Tern mating ritual - stupendous sightings like these are common for our monitors
What is going to be fascinating for tern populations will be the changes that result from Hurricane Sandy reshaping our beaches and offshore islands. Some areas will have better habitat for nesting terns while others have been too degraded to support the populations they did only a year ago. We need your help all the more to help decipher these complex changes and to monitor the progress of these important species while educating the public on why they deserve our protection. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to become a monitor or volunteer in some other capacity. None of this would be possible with the tireless efforts of caring Connecticut residents and we thank everyone for donating their time and energy to such a worthwhile endeavor.
