Lifting Off to Great Gull Island

Last week a very cool operation took place to help coastal waterbirds and it started on a Groton airstrip! Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds staff joined volunteers, U.S. Fish & Wildlife officials, and U.S. military personnel on a mission to load wood into a transport helicopter to bring to Great Gull Island. AAfCW Waterbird Technician Ewa Holland took many great photos of the effort which included two great birds: the CH-47F Chinook with the UH-60 Black Hawk as an escort.


There will be additional opportunities to help Great Gull Island throughout the year. Please keep an eye on this blog and emails sent out to all of our monitors and volunteers to see when and where help will be needed. Thank you!
