From Save the Sound:
Our most recently added option under the Long Island Sound Pledge is to help keep Long Island Sound clean by installing a rain barrel at home (http://reducerunoff.org/newhaven.htm). Like rain gardens, rain barrels can help protect the Sound by reducing stormwater runoff, particularly water polluted by vehicles on the road and in parking lots.
For just $50, you will receive an entire rain barrel kit, made locally by The Sound School (http://www.soundschool.com/). Taking our Pledge today will not only help keep Long Island Sound clean, but potentially support a local business as well!
In the U.S., Loggerhead sea turtles nest from April through September. They can lay eggs as many as eight times per season, with an average of 100+ eggs in each clutch! #regram from @jess_stahl #loggerhead #seaturtle #turtle #maritimeaquarium (at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk)
Did you know? All of the animals found in our Intertidal Touch Tank are commonly found along the Long Island Sound shoreline!

We asked legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle for her menu advice. Below, check out Earle’s take on omega oils, tuna rolls, and her ideal meal.
Have you ever been lucky enough to see a meerkat riding down a slide? On the cuteness scale, it’s one of their most adorable enrichments! #Regram from @magtifficent #tmameerkats #meerkats #maritimeaquarium (at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk)
The lorikeets are waiting for you! (But not for long, their exhibit takes flight after Labor Day.) We’ll miss these beauties! bit.ly/Lorikeets
