Roseate Tern

When Carol’s children were teenagers the NSLC produced a series of sweatshirts with endangered species on them as a fundraiser to help preserve these species. Carol bought one for each member of her family. All were so well used that they didn’t survive, except for one showing Roseate Terns that Carol later found. Carol has enjoyed seeing the common terns flying over the small lake by her property.

 Most Roseate Terns nest on small islands that are now protected by both federal and provincial order. A recovery plan has been adopted by the Nova Scotia Department of Lands and Forestry which involves regular monitoring, discouraging gulls by using noise-makers, using electric fencing to protect nest sites, and encouraging the growth of vegetation so that breeding pairs can keep the nests hidden.
