Massapequa New York Preserve Wildlife

 Since the Massapequa New York Preserve was updated and greatly improved with running, hiking, biking trails and man made ponds and streams, a variety of local wildlife has called this preserve home. 

I am happy to introduce Balthazar (a mute male swan) and Hera, his mate, who just gave birth to eight cygnets.


Besides have a wonderful safe place to call home, this family (among many other birds) have a huge support system from local Long Island residents.

I was informed about a nonprofit organization called The Wild Bird Fund. They rehabilitate over 3,000 sick, injured or orphaned wildlife and releases them back to the wilds of New York City. This critical work is accomplished though private donations and mostly volunteer labor. 

Even though this is a NYC organization, you could still volunteer, learn how to care for local wildlife and be proactive. If time is not on your side to volunteer, you could donate. 

Thank you to all the residents who help and assist in caring for our local wildlife!
