We want to thank everyone for their patience as well as support for the Great Lakes Piping Plover Recovery Effort! An unintended hiatus of sorts happened with our webpage this winter. During the school year, we enter and analyze data, write various reports and grants, and more, all to help the recovery effort continue being successful. We’d like to think our webpage got a rest and some time relaxing on a southern beach, just like the GLPIPL.
Our field season is fast approaching and we are working tirelessly to prepare though. The adult piping plovers have started migrating and will be returning to the breeding grounds that span the Great Lakes region in a few weeks. Nesting will begin in early/mid May. We are very excited for everything to start and to share updates on the plovers with you.
Please Note: We have posted on our social media sites (Twitter/Facebook: @GLPIPL) throughout the winter. We encourage you to connect with us on those platforms as well to stay up to date with the birds and recovery effort. Thank you!
