Plum Island Case

Soundkeeper has joined the environmental alliance to save Plum Island, NY from being sold to the highest bidder. We believe that this island, which is an important migration stopover for endangered marine birds, is a national treasure that should be protected and preserved. The potential sale of Plum Island is a threat to birds such as the piping plover, roseate tern, and bank swallow as well as to marine mammals such as  the grey and harbor seals that haul out on the island’s rocky shores.  We will continue our efforts to ensure wild parcels of coastal lands remain that way for the benefit of the natural world.
