Did you know? Each spring New Jersey hosts the largest concentration of shorebirds in North America! From about the first week in May to the second week in June, the biggest gathering of horseshoe crabs in the world comes to Delaware Bay to spawn. At the same time, hundreds of thousands of shorebirds arrive on the Bayshore to refuel on horseshoe crab eggs at a critical stopover during their migration. Delaware Bay is an extremely important area for a number of at-risk wildlife, including Red Knots and Horseshoe Crabs. American Littoral Society and Conserve Wildlife Foundation are restoring this significant habitat in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Learn more about our restoration work on our newly created project website: www.RestoreNJBayshore.org.

New Jersey shorebird now federally protected as threatened
species under Endangered Species Act

Wildlife conservation organizations leading the effort to restore New Jersey's Delaware Bay beaches for at-risk shorebirds today applauded the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decision to designate the Red Knot, a migratory shorebird, as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act. A "threatened" designation means a species is at risk of becoming endangered throughout all or a significant portion of its range.

The White House released an agenda to enhance the resilience of our Nation's natural resources, especially estuaries and coastal resources, in the face of climate change. Click here to get the details. We commend the White House for this increased priority and investment in our country's coastal natural resources. The American Littoral Society was highlighted for its work to increase resilience.
