Wildlife at the Jersey Shore

By Art Gallagher

Wildlife at the Jersey Shore by Noel Westerlind is not about summer shenanigans at Donovan’s Reef, D’Jais or Jenkinson’s.  There are no photos of Snooki or The Situation.

Noel’s first book is a complication of 200 of his best nature photos taken on the Jersey Shore from Sandy Hook to Cape May. Seals, eagles, osprey, owls, numerous species of ducks, turtle shenanigans, and much more.

The Leonardo retiree shares his amazing ability to capture the beauty and personality of our furry and feathered neighbors in a special way that inspires awe and deep appreciation.
