Protect Adirondack Wildlife

 

Nearly 500 animal species, including 87 that are rare in New York, live in the Adirondack Park. As a crucial home for migratory birds, mammals like the majestic moose, reptiles, butterflies and countless types of fish, it’s imperative that we protect the sensitive habitats within the Adirondack Park and preserve its wilderness to ensure the health and survival of this wildlife.

Adirondack wildlife is facing serious new threats every day. 

  • Climate change is altering the characteristics of the rare lowland boreal and boreal forest areas that provide habitat for many of our protected species.
  • Ticks and diseases harmful to wildlife are proliferating.
  • The winter season is becoming milder and shorter, threatening the habitats wildlife depend on.
  • Overuse, poorly planned housing, and road development reduce and fragment habitat, interfere with migration pathways, and put wildlife at risk of collision with vehicles.

The future survival of Adirondack wildlife depends on all of us. Please sign the petition asking the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation to better protect Adirondack wildlife and their habitats.
