The turtles are still digging up all of the sand on the island for their nests and the seals are still having pups. So business as usual for those guys.
The new volunteers are spending most of their off time taking pictures or swimming/snorkeling. I think they all like it here so far. I can't think of a whole lot more to say this week so I'll just give you some pictures.
This black-footed albatross is freshly banded and is almost ready to fledge.
Since we're doing so much banding these days, here's another picture. Although Ruth just left, Keith will be here for a few more months.
A green sea turtle, great frigatebird, and a couple of albatross chicks with LaPerouse Pinnacle in the background.
