April 21, 2009

Nesting habitat for Common Tern, a threatened species in New York, are being constructed by the New York Power Authority (NYPA) at two locations within Buffalo Harbor. The work comes as a result of the success the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation had with similar nesting habitat in the area. The Power Authority agreed to construct at least eight different Habitat Improvement Projects benefiting birds and other wildlife as part of the 50-year license issued by federal regulators for NYPA’s Niagara Power Project in 2007.
