About the Piping Plover

The Piping Plover is a small shorebird that is found along coastal beaches in North America. Part of their breeding grounds includes a large part of the northern Great Plains (in both the United States and Canada).

These darling shorebirds unfortunately have a conservation status of threatened or near-threatened across the states and provinces of their range. Their global population is on the rise but beach development and predation by non-native wildlife are among the threats facing the Piping Plover.
