Recognizing the importance of land stewardship, research, and education to the overall preservation effort of the Island's critical habitat, the Tuckernuck Land Trust purchased land and built a modest sized Field Station on Tuckernuck to provide housing for both visiting researchers and our seasonal Coastal Steward. Researchers continue to reveal exciting discoveries on Tuckernuck each year, including plant and animal species that have not been previously recorded. Astonishingly, a few of these species are not known to exist on neighboring islands, nor are they known to live within the close proximity and densities that have been observed on Tuckernuck. The Tuckernuck Land Trust is working with landowners and partners to understand the ecological needs of Tuckernuck's diversity of life.
