Snowy Plovers on the Rise

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has finished a plan to bring the population of the Western snowy plover on the Pacific Coast back to a sustainable level, allowing it to be removed from the federally protected category. The plan includes public participation and education, as well as cooperative management and monitoring due to frequent habitat interruption by beachgoers. Officials hope to have 1,200 breeding plover adults on the South Coast.
