The Piping Plover and Least Tern Recovery Project

Each spring, Piping Plovers and Least Terns return to nest and raise their young on southern Maine beaches. Piping Plovers and Least Terns are both listed as endangered species in Maine. Working with beach communities and visitors, we are working to ensure that endangered birds, wildlife and people can share the beach safely and responsibly.
