Chris Borkowski Helps to Install Osprey Nesting Platform

This spring, when ospreys begin to migrate northward from South America, they will have a new nesting site located near the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club in Galloway. Chris Borkowski, a graduating Environmental Studies and Photography major at Stockton College, helped to build and install a nesting platform for our college mascot in Dr. Daniel Moscovici’s Environmental Issues capstone course.

After studying natural habitat loss, Moscovici gave his students a challenge. “I asked the students to choose a local species, identify where on campus it would live and to build its habitat,” said Moscovici, an assistant professor of Environmental Science and Geology.

Groups chose animals ranging from bats to bluebirds, but Borkowski, of North Cape May, and his teammates Keith Mulligan, of Tabernacle, and Kelsey Thomas, of Cherry Hill, chose a species with close connections to the college.
