Request for community support for osprey nest protection signs

Baysave is asking for community support for our Money Island resident osprey pair.

Last season the rush of spring fishermen near our Bayview Road osprey nest disturbed the birds, they spent too long away from the nest, and the eggs died and did not hatch. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen again.

Yesterday and today we had visiting fishermen who disturbed the nest. We will take quick action.

NJDEP provided this sign design. We will print 4 of them and mount them on two double-sided plastic display stands. We will need to anchor them to withstand heavy wind on the beach.

Ospreys mate for life and return to the same nest year after year. Please support us in making sure that our osprey pair has a safe and peaceful nesting season.

PLEASE USE THE DONATE TAB ABOVE AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS PROJECT.

Thank you!
