Wilderness & Wildlife

About our Wilderness & Wildlife Work: New York is magnificent, from the beaches of Montauk to the Adirondack peaks to the deep old growth forests in western New York.  These landscapes support an incredible diversity of wildlife, like Atlantic sturgeon who grow to be more than eight feet long and bald eagles who once again soar across the state.

Environmental Advocates is working to protect New York’s vibrant landscapes and beautiful creatures through the conservations of forests, wetlands, and fields, and through responsible practices that keep our waterways clean.

The Mid-Hudson Bridge is host to newly hatched peregrine falcons for the 17th consecutive year.
“We are fortunate that our facilities have been so successful in helping re-establish such a beautiful and important species,” said Joseph Ruggiero, the executive director of the New York State Bridge Authority.
These chicks are the 45th, 46th and 47th peregrines fledged from the nesting box at the bridge. The boxes, installed at all five of the authority’s Hudson Valley crossings in the late 1980s, are designed to encourage the endangered species to remain in the region.

On April 23rd, people from every corner of New York came to Albany for Earth Day Lobby Day, a yearly event for every day New Yorkers get a chance to share their concerns with state leaders face to face. This year, advocates discussed issues including fracking, solar power, and toxic chemicals with state leaders.

While forests once provided subsistence for local people, for generations clearing forested land has also been good for global business, providing immediate food security for the world. Put simply, forests have been worth more dead than alive.
