Ocean City awards Gull Abatement Contract to Wildlife Control Specialists llc

Last year Ocean City, NJ hired East Coast Falcons to clear the Gulls off the Boardwalk in the resort town that regards itself as Americas Greatest Family Resort.  The program was a huge success.  In the video below you can see some clips from 2019 from Ocean City and hear and Interview from Bill Spadea with Joe Kosakowski discussing FBBA (Falconry Based Bird Abatement) with one of his Harris’s Hawks, Seven. Joe, along with his son Matt, own one of the companies that bid on the contract along with East Coast Falcons and Foster Falconry.  The contract was won by Wildlife Control Specialists llc., Joe and Matt’s company, for the 2020 season.  Due to the Covid 19/ Coronavirus Epidemic it is uncertain when the contract will start but it was slated for mid-May.  WCSllc has stated they will hire P.J. Simonis to fulfill the contract.  P.J. was the falconer who handled the contract for East Coast Falcons in 2019. You can see the project documented on Resource Raptors on Facebook.
