Protecting & Researching Ospreys
Several of Mass Audubon’s wildlife sanctuaries work to protect and study ospreys through a variety of projects.
Ospreys are a signature species for Martha’s Vineyard. These iconic birds are easy to see, breed on the Vineyard, and are a beloved symbol of the island. More than 100 nesting pairs of Osprey grace the island during our spring and summer seasons and then migrate south for the winter. Intense efforts by Felix Neck staff, researchers, and volunteers have led to their current success.
