Debate grows over planned sale of NY's Plum Island

FILE - In this Oct. 6, 2010 file photo, people on a tour of Plum Island, N.Y., off the coast of Long Island, watch seals relaxing on the rocky shore. Environmental groups on both sides of Long Island Sound have for several years called for the property, where the U.S. Department of Agriculture studies animal diseases, to be kept as a nature preserve. The U.S. government hopes to sell the island, using proceeds from the sale to defray the costs of moving its research operations to a new laboratory at Kansas State University.
