Since 2013, Audubon New York staff, volunteers, and partners have been working to increase the awareness of and reduce threats to beach-nesting birds by encouraging beach-goers to pledge to “share the shore” with Piping Plovers and other beach-nesting bird species.  During our on-the-beach outreach days, we set up a tent and table at the entrance to busy Long Island beaches and talk to as many beach-goers as possible about beach-nesting birds. We provide visitors with pamphlets and brochures about beach-nesting bird biology, our conservation work, and information on how to reduce disturbances to birds. Then, we ask visitors to sign our “Be a Good Egg” pledge and therefore agree to keep out of fenced off nesting areas, keep trash off the beach, and keep dogs off of nesting beaches. Prior to these outreach events, we’ll ask new volunteers to complete a brief online training webinar. Please contact Kaley Donovan (kdonovan@audubon.org) for more information and to sign up to volunteer for this exciting outreach program.
