Here at The Environmental Action Lab we strive to reconnect people to their environment and build sustainable infrastructure for a just society. We are a group of educators, scientists, farmers and future leaders in the fields of resource management, animal welfare and sustainability. The Environmental Action Lab has programs in both Brooklyn, NY and Puerto Rico, in which we educate and learn from others through field work, stewardship and service learning.
A Brooklyn Pigeon (Bigeon)
In New York City, pigeons are often referred to as pests and flying rats, but they were once considered barnyard animals.These feral birds are descendent of European rock doves. Scholars believe they were the first bird humanity domesticated. For over 6,000 year, pigeons have been supplying humanity with food, delivery services and even rescue aid. At TEAL, we recognize pigeons for their intelligence and resiliency.
