I am so happy to share the first edition of NWF’s Northeast newsletter. As a proud, lifelong resident of this region, I have developed a real love for our changing seasons, blooming flowers, birds, and other precious wildlife that I see year after year.
This newsletter is a way to share just a few of the amazing projects our members support across the region, from protecting the coastal habitat of migrating birds and the forested habitat of Bobcats and other iconic wildlife, to harnessing our children’s innate love of nature to advance environmental education. We encourage you to get involved in this work and would love to hear from you. Please reach out with feedback on this newsletter and our projects any time.
With sincere appreciation for your commitment to wildlife,
The world is covered in enough roadways to travel to the moon (and back!) 83 times. But many of these transport structures are not suitable for safe wildlife movements. It is our job to look for opportunities where culverts and bridges can help wildlife cross roads safely.
The Great Marsh is a key stop-over site for migrating shorebirds as they make one of the longest journeys of any animal on earth. But consequences of climate change and human development are occurring too rapidly in this habitat for the natural systems to adapt.
If there’s a silver lining to the U.S. getting in the offshore wind game 25 years behind Europe, it’s that advances in technology and development experience have moved the industry dramatically closer to being cost-competitive with traditional energy sources.
We are seeking to end the all-risk, no-reward transport of explosive oil along the shores of Lake Champlain and the Hudson River. This transport over aging tracks and bridges threatens wildlife, communities, and the economic vitality of the region.
