The piping plover is a migratory, precocial shorebird that nests on sparsely vegetated beaches on the atlantic coast, great lakes, and great plains in the united states and canada plover adult annual survival averages 76 %, resulting in an approximately 5 years average lifespan [ 14 . For various plover species (flemming et al 1988, buick and paton 1989, dowling and weston 1999) in 2012, nesting areas above the wet sand were again closed to all human use on grayland and south beach state parks and on national wildlife refuge and state park lands at leadbetter point. Habitat, and piping plover and least tern populations the ea includes predictive numerical models that restoration and/or population recovery actions for the mrms, the relevant action was the construction the historical reference approach for the mrms would require knowing, or reliably estimating, the amount of habitat and the number. Two individual species, muskrat and piping plover, were assigned priority weights of 13 , the former because of its importance as a keystone herbivore in emergent wetlands (eg, kaminski and prince, 1981) and the latter because of its rarity and federally and state endangered status (wemmer et.
Piping plovers will likely require varying levels of habitat management, beach closure, predator control, monitoring, and captive rearing throughout their range to maintain and to grow populations [15, 68] in our study, the predicted persistence of the hc and m2 populations is dependent upon the assumption of consistent management and. restoration of piping plover populations require restoration and regulations of nesting beaches over the last century, the exponential increase in the human population from 16 billion to around 7 billion currently, and massive worldwide industrialization have produced substantial demands on natural resources and pressures on many ecosystems. Atlantic piping plover populations declined due to hunting and the millinery trade in the 19th century with these eliminated, it increased in the first half of the 20th century, but began declining after 1950 due to development, dramatically increased beach recreation by humans, and predation by native and introduced predators.
Collectively, these studies provide a synergistic research effort to assess status of the interior least tern and piping plover populations, their habitats and associated monitoring efforts. The late nesting and renesting piping plover require about 68 days from start of nesting to the migration of the age-zero juveniles thus, the calculated migration date would be about october 8 or about 18 days after the last siting of piping plover.
