Long Island Sound has a new guardian of sorts. Earlier this year, biologist Bill Lucey was named soundkeeper of the Northeast estuary.
This hour, the Connecticut native stops by our studios.
We learn more about his role and talk about efforts to improve life in and around the Sound.
Plus: coughing, sneezing -- the familiar sounds of flu season.
But what happens when the virus infects a non-human species -- a seal, perhaps?
Coming up, we take a closer look and we also hear from you.
- Bill Lucey - Soundkeeper for Save the Sound, a program of the Connecticut Fund for the Environment
- Dr. Wendy Puryear - Researcher at Tufts University
