Barnegat Light was once one of the most important sites in New Jersey for beach nesting birds, including endangered piping plover. More recently, the quality of nesting habitat has degraded there, greatly reducing the number of breeding shorebirds. A proposal has now been developed to restore the site to make it more suitable to nesters once again. Join Todd Pover, Senior Wildlife Biologist at Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, and one of the leads on the restoration to hear details about the project and an update on nesting status at Barnegat Light.
