Partners for Piping Plovers!

Piping Plover numbers are up! The number of breeding pairs has more than doubled from when it was listed as a federally threatened species in 1986 to nearly 1,800 pairs today—close to the range-wide recovery goal of 2,000 pairs!

The partnership that is helping restore this species was featured in the April-May-June 2012 Endangered Species Bulletin. Several Teaming With Wildlife Coalition members were featured partners in the article, including the state fish & wildlife agencies within the range of the plover, National Audubon Society, Massachusetts Audubon Society, and Conserve Wildlife Federation of New Jersey.
