Wildlife Impact Assessments
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, NFWF has taken immediate action to help assess the impact on coastal and marine habitats and the species that inhabit them. Using the Hurricane Sandy Wildlife Response Fund, NFWF invested in technical partners to take immediate action to assess the impact of Hurricane Sandy on fish and wildlife and the habitat on which they rely. Major coastal and marine habitats along the eastern seaboard, including tidal marshes, beaches and barrier islands, where hit hard by the wind, rain, and storm surge associated with Sandy. These natural areas serve as critical habitat for more than 100 species of migratory birds, plus oysters and fish, and other important wildlife.
