New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos is asking New Yorkers to take part in the DECs annual survey of wild turkeys.
The survey helps the DEC determine the productivity of the turkey population throughout the state.
“Citizen scientists provide important data that helps our biologists examine how factors such as weather, predation, and habitat conditions during the breeding and brood-rearing seasons impact turkey survival,” Commissioner Seggos said. “Without the assistance of our volunteers, the task of monitoring turkey populations statewide would be far more difficult, and we encourage participation this summer to help enhance our knowledge of turkeys in New York.”
