Project Description

This project will reduce disturbance to nesting and foraging habitat for beach nesting birds in the project areas. The project involves three components: (1) Placing symbolic fencing (signs and posts connected with rope) around sensitive nesting sites of beach nesting birds to indicate the site as off-limits to people, pets, and other sources of disturbance; (2) Increasing predator control to reduce disturbance and loss of eggs, chicks, and adult beach nesting birds at nesting sites, and (3) Increasing surveillance and monitoring of posted nesting sites to minimize disturbance to nesting habitat in posted areas.
