Apparently Plum Island is a NY IBA but will that be enough to prevent development of this much needed migratory stop and bird habitat?  NY State Congress people are working hard to preserve the island as a vital conservation area.

> Located just off the coast of Old Saybrook, Plum Island is a stewardship area of national, if not international, conservation importance. Its 840 acres feature wild beach, dune, and bluff. Fierce currents abound with marine life, luring small bait fish, which attract larger predators: striped bass, squid, bluefish, and seals. Whales and sea turtles have also been spotted here. More than 200 bird species, including rare roseate terns and piping plovers, have been observed.
