Protecting Wildlife on Fire Island

Fire Island National Seashore participated in the Long Island Century Bat Survey to research and educate the public about declining bat populations.

With rhythmic waves, high dunes, ancient maritime forests, historic landmarks, and glimpses of wildlife, Fire Island has been a special place for diverse plants, animals, and people for centuries. Far from the sounds and pressures of nearby big-city life, Fire Island National Seashore's dynamic barrier island beaches offer solitude and camaraderie, and spiritual renewal to civilization-weary people.

Fire Island National Seashore partnered with several organizations as well as Gateway National Recreation Area and Sagamore Hill National Historic Site to participate in The Long Island Century Bat Survey, an event designed to collect important data about rapidly declining bat populations, and to educate the public about the current status of bats, and how they can help.
