DEC Cautions Residents Not to Disturb Fawns and Other Young Wildlife

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today cautioned visitors to natural areas against interacting with newborn fawns and other young wildlife as the peak birthing season starts. Those that see a fawn or other newborn wildlife should enjoy their encounter but keep it brief, maintain some distance, and not attempt to touch the animal.

“New York is home to a diverse array of wildlife and natural habitats. To protect these resources we encourage New Yorkers and visitors to respect the environment and be aware that interactions with wildlife could be detrimental to their well-being,” DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said. “We encourage visitors to our natural areas and parks to enjoy young animals in the wild from a safe distance.”

Don't let this happen to you!

Come hear how to avoid a similar fate for your presentation at our next INP Leadership Seminar tomorrow!
