Sneak Peek: Optimal Foraging Habitat Characteristics to Inform Piping Plover & Red Knot Habitat Management

About the project

Through a 2020 catalyst project, staff from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources worked with ACE Basin NERR and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to fill a critical gap in understanding piping plover needs by quantifying foraging habitat characteristics of this declining shorebird species and developing a habitat assessment tool to inform state and federal permitting and habitat management activities.
