Environmental Stewardship

PSEG Long Island is proud to play a small role in the conservation of wildlife on Long Island. Part of being a good environmental steward is being strongly involved in our community - and this includes our local wildlife.

Ospreys on Long Island

The more people know about osprey, the more they love them. Ospreys have made Long Island’s coastlines and abundant fish populations their home. These powerful migratory hunters tend to come back to the same location each year to nest and raise their young. Historically ospreys would nest near the water in dead trees. Now ospreys often choose other high locations such as telephone and utility poles, posing serious safety concerns for both the birds and our customers.

Monk Parakeets

Monk parakeets, also known as Quaker parrots, are small, brightly colored birds that are native to South America. While beautiful in appearance, they are an invasive species reportedly capable of doubling in population every 7.5 years. Monk parakeets prefer to build their massive nests atop power poles, threatening electric reliability for all PSEG Long Island customers.
