Posted January 17, 2020 from Seattle, WA

The state of Virginia is planning to use the new loophole in the Migratory Bird Act to destroy Virginia’s largest seabird-nesting colony, containing 20,000 beautiful and imperiled Terns–mostly Elegant Terns, Sandwich Terns and also the threatened Gull-billed Tern and other species of waterbirds.  The American Bird Conservancy is leading the fight to at least ask Virginia to build a new island to serve as an alternative nesting site for the birds that will otherwise be rendered homeless because the state paved over the South Island of Hampton Roads for a highway-widening project in 2019.
