“I am pleased that the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has listened to the issues that have arisen from the planned update of the Mute Swan Management Plan.
I am hopeful the DEC takes to heart my recommendation to conduct a new, independent study for consideration in the development of any revised plan.
The Department of Environmental Conservation’s approach is a good first step towards a comprehensive and successful Mute Swan Management Plan.”
