A glimpse into the secret life of seabirds – Bon Portage Island stewardship excursion
20 Jun 2019

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).
