Haffenden works for Birmingham Audubon, which put up ropes and signs to remind people of the federally protected least terns the next day. Officers with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources also were alerted and have added the island to their patrols.

“Ever since we put the fencing up, everyone has been very respectful. We have not seen a human footprint in the area. Boaters have not pulled up to that area,” Katie Barnes, chief biologist for Birmingham Audubon’s Coastal Program, told Raines.


Thank you Barb.
