The New York Bight encompasses more than 16,000 square miles of coastal and ocean waters from Montauk, New York, to Cape May, New Jersey. It is an ecological treasure trove, providing critical migration routes for globally threatened species, including sea turtles, whales, and sharks, as well as nursery grounds and critical habitat for hundreds of other marine species. Noah Chesnin, Associate Director of the New York Seascape Program, will describe how the Wildlife Conservation Society’s New York Aquarium is engaged in field research, education and policy advocacy in order to help protect marine wildlife and help cultivate an ocean ethic in the region.

The mission of the Brooklyn Bird Club is to encourage and promote birdwatching and conservation in Brooklyn and beyond.
