Saving my spot

Today, Alcatraz is being preserved for the enjoyment and understanding of future generations. Former prison buildings are being conserved and seismically upgraded, and additional areas of the island are opened to the public as safety hazards are removed. Seabirds are retuning to the island in ever-greater numbers, and naturalists carefully follow the number of eggs laid during the 8-month long nesting season.
