#DontTrashLISound – 6 (Summer 2019)

This summer we are distributing thousands of #ProtectOurWildlife stickers in communities across #LISound through environmental groups and municipalities. Our first sticker in the series is the American Oystercatcher, which is easy to identify with its colorful bill. A strictly coastal bird, it lives in areas with extensive sand beaches, tidal mudflats, and salt marsh. If an oystercatcher finds the shell of a shellfish slightly open, it quickly jabs its bill into the opening to eat its prey. Break the #SingleUsePlastic habit and protect these birds. Place these stickers on your reusable bottles to help spread the message! #DontTrashLISound.
