Two summers ago I worked for the US Dept. of Fish and Wildlife on a long-term productivity study at a Black Legged Kittiwake rookery in Prince William Sound. Me and another girl camped a mile from the rookery of 18,000 birds for a month and a half with occasional 45 minute Zodiac trips into Valdez for supplies. The rookery was only one mile from Shoup Glacier, so we went to sleep every night listening to the glacier calve, which sounds like loud thunder, it's pretty impressive. If we wanted to take a break, we could drive the zodiac directly to the glacier and check out the spectacular views.
