Prospect Park Wildlife

Prospect Park is home to creatures great and small—get to know these backyard Brooklynites! From the 200+ species of birds in the park, to the bees and bugs pollinating the plants, to the frogs and fish that swim in the Lake, each creature plays and important part in this thriving ecosystem.

Prospect Park Alliance exists to ensure Prospect Park is green, vibrant and welcoming for everyone, every day. Now more than ever, we invite you to become an Alliance member: support the park you know and love, and ensure it remains a vital part of the fabric of this community today and for years to come.
