Protecting Animals – What Does Your City Do?

Protecting Animals - What Does Your City Do ?

For the safety of the wild animals that visit and inhabit our park and other lands in New York City, our City Council has enacted legislation to protect their habitat. As more people are drawn to city parks, forests, and wildlife refuges, more homeless animals are forced to find a place to call home. These formerly treasured species can and should be protected.

Hence, horses, like most domesticated animals, require a lot of food, shelter, and a safe environment to survive. It is amazing that many wildlife refuges, parks, and forests provide an excellent environment for these animals, but in many cases, this is not true. The cruel reality is that the residents of these parks, refuges, and forests do not necessarily want the wild animals to thrive.

Best Habitat: Animals

That is why this protective legislation is needed. Providing these animals with the best habitat is important to ensure that they have enough room to live and thrive. Wild animals may have to be relocated due to land development projects. However, for the safety of the residents of these parks, refuges, and forests, it is important to provide an adequate habitat for the survival of these species.

Therefore, all New Yorkers should be concerned about protecting their pets, providing the best shelter for their own City Parks and forests, and protecting their pets from dangers they may encounter as they roam free in the city. That is why this legislation passed and why we are here today. As a Council Member, I am committed to doing everything possible to protect the animals who visit these locations.

Natural Habitat

The best animal habitat for the animals is the existing natural habitat that exists for these animals. Animal experts will tell you that there are steps we can take to improve the habitat. These include stream stabilization, wetlands recharge, expanded and maintained buffer areas, creation of new habitat, and adding wild animal fencings, such as raccoon and bear repellents, and keyed out predators to deter coyotes and fox.

Cats & Dogs: Animals

Cats and dogs are our best friends, and they are responsible for eliminating 90% of all bugs in our yards. The problem is not only with the cats and dogs but with people that allow them to roam free in our neighborhoods.

We also have to protect our wild creatures. By preventing them from entering our cities and by supporting natural habitats for these animals.

Our job as citizens is to ensure that we are providing these creatures with a better and safer habitat. As you can see, the answer is very simple. Protect your City Parks and wild creatures, and the natural habitat they need to survive.

By implementing a No-Kill program, we can decrease the numbers of wild animals that enter our cities and take up residence in our wildlife refuges, parks, and forests. Ensuring a thriving wildlife habitat is our responsibility as New Yorkers.
