8:45 am - 10:00 am
Field Trip Leader:
MBC members will be attending this. We are not hosting it but know that many club members are interested.
The meeting starts at 9 but arrive by 8:45. Not sure how long it will last. Probably not too long.
Here are the talking points:
1. Tell the DGIF board that you appreciate all their efforts to protect the colony to this point and their future efforts!
2. Express urgency: the birds will start returning in 2 months.
3. Since no alternative habitat has been created, the South Island should be regraveled so the birds can nest in 2020!
4. The South Island has provided suitable to ideal habitat for almost 40 years! This eviction is not necessary and plans to destroy eggs and chicks require a Migratory Bird Takings permit!
If you have bird garments, please wear them! Or bring a picture of a tern or gull to hold up for the board members to see.
