An artificial colony using decoys, nesting boxes, sound system and habitat enhancement is being used to re-establish a Roseate Tern colony in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. Historically this area supported one-third of the Canadian Roseate Tern population but it was abandoned in the mid-1990’s. The Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation started this multifaceted project in 2004. In 2007 we shipped a small number of Roseate decoys to Ireland for a pilot study.
