The purpose of this website is to document and share information about the ecology of the wetlands and surrounding wooded areas near Fish Bay.

The website is a work in progress – additional photos, information and resources will be added over time.

It is managed by Gail Karlsson, an environmental lawyer and author who has a house in the Fish Bay area next to a black mangrove pond. Unless otherwise noted, all the photographs and video clips are hers.

Her book  The Wild Life in an Island House is available on amazon.com.
