G'day Chatters,
Have just seen a news report on SBS (Australian) TV, that BEAL
(Aerospace company in Texas) are planning to build a new rocket base on
Sombrero Island, on the Caribbean Nation of Anguilla, would anyone be
aware of the details and what action is being taken in defence of the
seabird colony there? Apparently Brown and Masked Boobies are nesting
currently and many other seabirds breed there at different times.....the
report claimed that BEAL intend to recreate the nesting conditions on
other islands nearby. Grateful for all input.
