Michael Scheibel is the Natural Resources Manager of the 2,039 acre Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island. Part of Mike’s duties include protection and observation of a pair of Bald Eagles that have nested there. Is this a trend due to improved environmental conditions, overcrowding in more traditional nesting sites, or other reasons?
Mike was hired by the Nature Conservancy (TNC) in 1994 as Project Manager to direct conservation planning for the privately acquired Robins Island. In 1996, he accepted his present position. Prior to working for TNC, Mike was a Senior Wildlife Biologist for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in Stony Brook. During the two decades of working for the Bureau of Wildlife, he initiated a study of the local endangered species program. This included osprey, bald eagles, piping plover, and tiger salamander.
