Osprey population flying high again over New Jersey coast

Back in 1975, New Jersey’s osprey population plummeted to fewer than 70 breeding pairs. The latest count shows 515 nesting osprey couples and 150 breeding pairs of eagles, most of them along Barnegat Bay.

Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, a nonprofit that builds and repairs marshland nesting platforms for the birds, is facing potential funding cutbacks and seeks volunteer support. Brenda Flanagan has the story for NJTV NEWS.
