If funding can't be restored, Falkner Island tern management activities would have to be closed down, as would environmental education operations at Outer Island and the other island units would likely be closed to public access.  Also, ~1/2 of the Roseate Tern nesting habitat at Falkner Island was washed away and there would be no funding for restoration.

Stay tuned for opportunities to express your concern.
