Sound Health 2003 is our report to the public on the environmental issues affecting Long Island Sound. It provides information on water quality, the abundance of animal and plant life in the Sound, and efforts to restore natural areas. It also includes a photo essay of the undersea life of the Sound, and features on the diamondback terrapin, salt marsh sparrows, and invasive species. Many Sunday newspaper readers in the coastal communities of Long Island Sound will be receiving the report as an insert to their Sept. 28 local newspaper. Sound Health 2003 is also available now on our website. For a complete set of our indicators, the data collected that was used to produce Sound Health 2003, see Long Island Sound Study Indicators & Trends.
