Centre Island Bird Sanctuary

CI Bird Sanctuary

Birding aboard Chicane

We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a commitment to preserving critical habitats for migratory birds. Our mission extends beyond just safeguarding these animals – it's about fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for avian conservation through education.

Our sanctuary offers a truly unique experience. We operate on the water, providing free of charge guided birdwatching tours aboard sailing and motor vessels that explore the waters of Long Island.

We hope to share the beauty (and love) of birding with you! Join us on our expeditions to engage in citizen science, deepen your connection with nature, and become a better birder.
