November marks the 10-year anniversary of the Cosco Busan oil spill in San Francisco Bay. With that in mind, we recently revisited our restoration project on Aramburu Island in Richardson Bay that was largely inspired by the disaster. We're happy to report that the birds are responding well to the newly created habitat.
Congratulations to Morro Coast Audubon for their recent acquisition and opening of a new trail at the Sweet Springs Nature Preserve in Los Osos. The 8-acre eastern addition to the Preserve features a handicap accessible 250-foot long boardwalk, with four informational kiosks along the way and a viewing platform overlooking the bay. Check it out the next time you are in Morro Bay.
Cool story about researchers finding several Brown Boobie nests on the Channel Islands. It's the first time this has happened.
Fascinating report from Midway Island reporting a new -- and frankly disturbing -- threat to Laysan Albatrosses to their most important Pacific breeding site.
