SoFo: Update in Conservation: Status of the Piping Plover and Least Tern in Southampton Town: Adult/Teen

Saturday, September 15, 2018

2:00 pm - Program Presenter: John Papajohn, Crew Leader, Southampton Town Trustees Threatened and Endangered Species Program.


Join John Papajohn for an update about the conservation status of piping plovers & least terns in Southampton Town. Piping plovers & least terns are both species currently protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act & state conservation law. During this program John will describe measures being taken to protect nesting plovers & terns & give a synopsis of the season including their local success. Understanding the reasoning behind plover/tern fencing & how it is making a difference in the conservation effort are the first steps in creating a safer environment for these species.
