A note from the Regional Director
Welcome to the summer edition of NWF’s Northeast newsletter. I’m so lucky to work every day to protect all kinds of wildlife, from ocean giants like North Atlantic right whales to small shorebirds like red knots and semipalmated sandpipers. The articles below describe our work to protect these species and more. I hope you’ll take a few moments to check them out—and maybe even shoot me an email to get involved!

We couldn’t do any of this work without support from passionate wildlife conservationists like you. Thanks so much for making it all possible.

Learn how you can help preserve this essential habitat.
