You are here: Wildlife & Habitat / The Piping Plover and Least Tern Monitoring Project
Each spring, piping plovers and least terns return to nest and raise their young on Maine’s coastal beaches. They share the beach with other wildlife and with people—both of which affect their ability to survive.
Unfortunately, their survival is not guaranteed.
