Piping Plovers Living the Life


For many shorebirds, nesting season is highly stressful and often

unsuccessful – often due to human interaction.  But in one spot in NJ, there is a protected beach area where Piping Plovers can raise their brood relatively undisturbed – due to human intervention.  Because here, a protected spot was built especially to protect the nesting habitat of this rapidly disappearing species and keep it predator free.  Take a minute to watch this enchanting video of a Piping Plover familydoing what they do best – living the life.  And be inspired.
