New York City is home to an amazing abundance of wildlife. From falcons and salamanders, to deer and seals, wildlife viewing opportunities exist year-round in all of our parks and beaches. Wildlife viewing is a perfect activity for any age. Rangers will guide you to the best wildlife viewing spots in New York City.

Winter is the best time of year to see seal visiting New York City. A variety of seal species can be seen from Orchard Beach. To enhance your experience we encourage you to bring binoculars and field guides, or ask a Ranger to borrow a pair.
