ENV-CHANNELISLANDS-GULLS:LA — Thirty minutes immediately after setting sail for the Channel Islands National Park, Ana Sofia Guerra spotted a creamy white sea gull soaring majestically against the slate gray sky.

The other passengers on the 64-foot catamaran had been captivated by a pod of dolphins leaping playfully from the water, but Guerra kept her eyes educated on the solitary gull.

The ecologist pointed a massive camera skyward and snapped a image of the seabird gliding on the sturdy ocean breeze. Then a smile spread across her face.

“It’s most likely heading back from a trip to McDonald’s,” she stated.

For the final couple of years, Guerra has been studying the consuming habits of western gulls that nest on Anacapa and Santa Barbara islands in the Channel Islands archipelago.

Normally it is humans who are accountable for polluting organic ecosystems. But on Anacapa and Santa Barbara islands, gulls seem to be the ones spoiling the wild habitat with processed meals and puked-up trash.

Guerra hopes her study will reveal whether or not, and how, the birds’ unnatural consuming behaviors are affecting the other plants and animals that share their island residence.
