Tern truth

Canadian Geographic - - YOUR SPACE - Car­o­line Folk Thorn­hill, Ont.

I re­ally don’t think we should in­ter­fere with na­ture by killing a preda­tory species when it will con­tinue to sur­vive (“Ei­ther you choose to shoot gulls or you choose to let that tern colony dis­ap­pear,” Septem­ber/oc­to­ber). Is it worth the gulls’ suf­fer­ing to keep that Arc­tic tern pop­u­la­tion go­ing? As much as I sym­pa­thize with the terns, they will learn to build their nests else­where.
