Great Lakes Piping Plover Recovery Effort

A partnership to study and conserve this migratory shorebird's endangered population between UMN, USFWS, USGS, NPS, DNR, more & You!


Living on the beach might seem like a dream but for the birds that raise their chicks there, life isn’t easy. While these birds do have lots of cool ways that they survive (camouflage, certain defense tactics, beak shape for eating certain foods, etc…) there are a lot of things that put these birds in danger. Many things today are caused by people or situations that can usually be avoided and help protect the birds tremendously.
