Trash. It's a global problem. And it’s a local problem, right here on our beautiful Seven Mile island. You’ve seen it on the beach, but you may not know it’s al...l over the back bays. Perhaps from ignorance, carelessness or a host of other reasons, including the ocean breezes we love so much. Many will say, "no way - Avalon does not has a trash problem!", but trash quickly sinks beneath the surface of the water and forever lines the bottom of our bays, suffocating the sea. What does not sink floats out to sea. Two intrepid Avalon residents are talking trash, and doing something about it. Each day they kayak the back bay around the Cedar Island bird preserve, scouring the bay to pick up all the trash they can.
Join them on Instagram as they post their daily trash finds, interesting oddities, and the occasional treasure. They will compiling a tally of the things they find for the entire 2017 season. Visit this www.foundinthebay.com

This 2017 Season there were 3 hatch-lings. The youngest went missing probably from an owl attack. The oldest chick has fledged. The middle chick has wing damage and is having trouble flying but trying hard.
