About Us

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the principal Federal agency responsible for conserving, protecting, and enhancing fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The Long Island NWR Complex, headquartered in Shirley, NY, encompasses ten units, totaling nearly 6,500 acres. The primary purpose for each is to benefit wildlife. These nine units protect many of the Island’s habitat types critical to migratory birds, endangered species and other wildlife. Long Island’s strategic location—situated in the Long Island Pine Barrens and along the Atlantic Flyway—provides important nesting, wintering and migratory stop-over areas for hundreds of bird species. Each unit is unique in wildlife species, habitat and management programs.
