It's actually very complicated. For instance, the endangered Laysan ducks sometimes like to hang out in the verbesina, which of course is a highly invasive weed that chokes out native plants and ruins albatross nesting areas. So people have to decide weather it's more important to get rid of the weeds or take a chance on hurting a duck. That's just one example, but that's the kind of stuff that we think about here.
This is our supply ship, the "Kahana". One of those shipping containers has my bike and matress.
While I was taking a picture of the Kahana, I saw this white tern chick. Since I haven't given you one for a while, here it is.
Close-up of the same chick.
