VERY URGENT ISSUE REGARDING NESTING TERNS IN CT!!!!!

Just posted on CTBirds by Nick Bonomo:

Hi all,

Larry Flynn called from his boat to report a large number (dozens if  
not hundreds) of terns attempting to nest at Cockeonoe Island in  
Westport. Larry has been monitoring this area for a long time and has  
not seen anything like this in years. The urgent issue is the  
impending holiday weekend, which will bring dozens of boats ONTO the  
nesting colony itself. Boats are beached here, and kids/dogs run wild.

Is there any way we can get this roped off later today or tomorrow  
morning?  Larry said he will provide boat transport to the island. I  
will also gladly volunteer.

Who can we contact to set this up and/or provide supplies??

Thanks,
Nick (for Larry)

I can be reached at 203...645.....2059 if necessary.

If you know anyone that can help-PLEASE call him.

    Thanks a lot for that Alex. Luckily we got a hold of the authorities, and in conjunction with birders Charlie Barnard and of course Larry Flynn, we were able to put something together. Right now Larry, Charlie, and one or two others are out there putting up a perimeter fence.
