Today is Endangered Species Day and we hope everyone takes an extra moment to celebrate GLPIPL and all the other amazing endangered species in our world.

We also want to take this time to thank all of you for your continued support! There is no “I” in Great Lakes Plover Recovery Effort, and the success of conservation efforts being done to help this species wouldn’t be possible without everyone. The sighting reports, beach monitoring, spreading the word, and more make such a huge impact for the project. The kind comments we receive are wonderful and we’re so grateful. Don’t forget though that telling a friend about piping plovers and how simple actions on the beach and with the plovers mean so much too! Even small things like keeping your dog leashed in areas near piping plovers or respecting roped off areas to give plovers their much needed space, are all really important things that make a big difference. The continued success of the Great Lakes Piping Plover (GLPIPL) will take all of us continuing to chip in and do our part.
