You have a chance to help save Plum Island. Please act now!
The Senate Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee is making decisions on legislation to preserve the island, which as you may remember sits at the eastern end of Long Island Sound.
The legislation repeals the requirement to sell Plum Island! This would be a huge victory for habitat protection in our area.
An accompanying report encourages Homeland Security to limit any future use of the island to research, education, and conservation.
Over the past few years, lawmakers from both sides of Long Island Sound and both sides of the aisle have been working hard to delay and repeal the language that put the sale of this ecologically significant island in motion.
