I’ve come to love seagulls. If you spend enough time being still, being part of the beach, you’ll become part of their flock. They are resourceful, graceful, strong, brave, and an important part of the Eco-chain that keeps the seaside cycle of life in balance.
They are also incredibly fragile. If they break a wing, they will not survive. They will either become part of the food chain or be euthanized. Please teach your children to behave as good guests at the seaside. Don’t let them hurl rocks at or chase or shoot water guns at the gulls. Teach your children to be respectful and don’t let them engage in destruction for destruction sake.
We can all enjoy a day at the beach together without injuring or killing the gulls.
