New Jersey's Rare Wildlife: an Overview
Time & Place
Cape May County Library
New Jersey harbors a wide variety of habitats. From the barrier beaches and coastal marshes of the ocean edge to the highlands, ridges and valleys of the northwest, NJ is situated at a biological crossroads unique to our geographic area. With over 500 species, New Jersey ranks as one of the most diverse wildlife habitats in the country. Peregrine falcons nest on our bridges and skyscrapers, osprey fish in our marshes and estuaries and the stealth like bobcat lives in the inner most secluded sections of New Jersey’s forests.
