Osprey Task Force

Making a difference, together.

Starting in 2019, PSEG Long Island and The Group for the East End enlisted the support of local environmental groups and other stakeholders to assist the company in implementing a strategy that would protect both the electrical infrastructure and wildlife such as the osprey.

Our Conservation Partners
PSEG Long Island created an internal team and a specialized process to identify and evaluate osprey nest sites located on our infrastructure. The team, which spans multiple departments and areas of expertise, continues to make sure we act safely and responsibly to keep our feathered neighbors flying — and the electricity flowing.
