A glimpse into the secret life of seabirds – Bon Portage Island stewardship excursion
20 Jun 2019
Certain seabirds can lead very mysterious lives – there are many species that spend the majority of time out at sea, only coming to land to nest. When they do come to land, it is typically on remote islands that are largely inaccessible to people. Over June 7-9, on a special weekend-long excursion to Bon Portage Island for our Connecting with Nature series of events, we were able to offer volunteers an opportunity to get a glimpse into the secret life of one species of seabird in particular—Leach’s Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma leucorhoa).
