Great Gull Island

Presenters: Helen Hays and Joe DiCostanzo

Great Gull IslandHelen Hays and Joe DiCostanzo, researchers at the Museum of Natural History, will present highlights from more than 40 years of research, monitoring and habitat support of the nesting Roseate and Common terns on Great Gull Island in Eastern Long Island Sound. Currently a record 9,500 Common tern pairs and 1300 Roseate tern pairs nest there. Discovery of abnormal nestlings sounded the early warnings on toxic levels of PCBs in the Sound in the 1970’s. A large number of volunteers assist during the breeding season, and the project has partners in South America where they discovered the first concentration of Roseate terns in the non-breeding season.
