Audubon and Greenwich Want to Make Sure the Great Captains Island Heronry Escapes the Fate of the Chimon Island Heronry

Audubon Connecticut and the town of Greenwich are collaborating on a study to figure out how best to protect the herons and egrets that nest on Great Captains Island. Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, in Massachusetts, will do the work. The thought is that the heronry is the descendant of the one that used to be on Chimon Island, in Norwalk, 20 years ago. Raccoons helped wipe that one out.
