We said goodbye to our last volunteer group for the foreseeable future. I hope it won't last too long. I'll be a lot busier cleaning seeps and looking for sick or dead Laysan ducks and all sorts of other projects that I got major help with from the volunteers. More outside time will be ok with me though.
Jan found some good examples of dead albatross chicks filled with plastic, so look for an exhibit in the Smithsonian in another year or two! Pretty much all of the dead chicks have some plastic, but he was looking for ones where you could see the plastic without digging through the bird. That way the Smithsonian can display a bird just like it was found on the island.
