Osprey Restoration

We’re all about giving flight to an endangered species.

The rebound of nearly extinct ospreys in Vermont is a story of dedication and hard work – one in which we’re proud to have played a role. Vermont utilities have always worked to protect Vermont’s natural resources, and back in the 1980s, CVPS began a long customer-suggested campaign to save the endangered raptors.

Working with the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife and customer Meeri Zetterstrom – known to many as Grandma Osprey – CVPS helped remove ospreys from the endangered species list in 2005.   Through a dedicated education program that included publication of a hardbound children’s book, “Meeri Meets the Ospreys,” and installation of dozens of nesting platforms, CVPS, with support from GMP and other utilities, helped the fish-eating raptors flourish across Vermont.

These days, ospreys can be found throughout Vermont, plying the state’s waterways for fish and symbolizing what can be achieved when individuals, government, and the business community work together. We couldn’t be more proud – or more in awe of these spectacular, acrobatic birds.
