Island Sentinel Grant - 2013 recap with video

This summer, the Fishers Island Conservancy and the Community Center launched a new program - Island Sentinels - to enable students from the F.I. School to learn about wildlife monitoring and connect with the natural environment of our Island on a scientific level. Guided by naturalist Justine Kibbe, the first two Island Sentinels, the brother-sister team of Olivia and Rob Backhaus, did a fabulous job of observing and recording conditions at ten different sites around the island.
