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.
Naturalist and Conservancy grant recipient Justine Kibbe's work has been attracting media attention recently.
The Conservancy welcomes our first Island Sentinels, the brother-sister team of Rob and Olivia Backhaus. Rob graduated this year from the Fishers Island School and is headed to college this fall. Olivia will be a senior at the F.I. School this fall.
