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.

Communities in NJ have been devastated by Superstorm Sandy and will continue to be tested by future storms and other extreme weather events due to climate change and sea level rise. One of the key ways that we can protect communities and help them become more resilient is through open space preservation. Open space is critical for not only extreme weather and protection of people and property but wildlife habitat, clean water, public access to recreation opportunities, flood plain management, and basic quality of life.
