We are excited to share that there are officially 73 pairs of GLPIPL currently for the 2015 breeding season! This is a new record (previously 71 pairs) since this population was listed as federally endangered in 1986.

The season is quickly wrapping up so stay tuned for more recaps and summaries of the summer.

Also, make sure to check out the website thoroughly to learn more about the project and recovery effort. At the top of the page are permanent reference tabs where you can learn more about the piping plovers specifically, who we are,  what we do, and what you can do. Also make sure to check us out on Twitter and Facebook (@GLPIPL) to get more up to the minute updates from the field.

  1. Fantastic news! And let’s hope they are all planning a trip to Abaco soon, where people will look out for them. And then return safely and start breeding again… RH
