For 36 years, Wildlife Biologist Peter Nye led New York State’s Endangered Species Unit for the Department of Environmental Conservation where he was deeply involved in numerous raptor projects including extensive work on Peregrine Falcons, Osprey, Short-eared Owls, Golden Eagles, and Bald Eagles.  During this time, he led the effort to successfully restore Bald Eagles to New York State.

On October 13, Peter will explore the biology, remarkable comeback, and current status of Bald Eagles in NYS and elsewhere.  Come with questions!

Peter was a past leader of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services Northern States Bald Eagle Recovery Team, is currently a member of the select international working group on Sea Eagles and climate change, and teaches a graduate course in Wildlife Management at the University at Albany.
