official  days  that  are set aside to increase public awareness of, and
appreciation for, the natural resources of this great Empire State; and
 
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and  in  full  accord  with  its

to southern Westchester County, Connecticut, and the northern shores  of
Long  Island,  is  a place where saltwater from the Atlantic Ocean mixes
with water from in-land rivers; and
 
  WHEREAS, Commercial and recreational activities in the  Long  Island
Sound  generate  billions  of dollars in the economy every year; 500,000
boats are registered in the area of the Long Island  Sound,  and  nearly
750,000   recreational  fishermen  utilize  this  extraordinary  natural
resource; and
 
  WHEREAS, The Long Island Sound is 21 miles wide at its widest points
and 113 miles long; it has 600 miles of coastline; and
 
  WHEREAS, The Long Island Sound is home to sea turtles and more  than
120 species of finfish, as well as several shark species; and
 
  WHEREAS,  Several  bird  species can be found including the American
Oystercatchers, Piping Plovers, Saltmarsh Sparrows, Roseate Terns, Snowy
Egrets, and Ospreys; and
 
  WHEREAS, Furthermore, both river otters and humpback whales, who had
not been seen in more than a century, can once again  be  found  in  the
Long  Island  Sound due to the incredible efforts that have been made to
rehabilitate the area; and
 
  WHEREAS, The Long Island Sound is a destination appreciated by  both
residents  and  visitors  who seek the natural, scenic, and recreational
qualities of this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
 
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its  deliberations  to
memorialize  Governor  Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim May 24, 2019, as Long
Island Sound Day in the State of New York; and be it further
