Habitat Protection and Restoration

Plover exclosure

Piping Plover exclosure protects eggs and chicks from predation and disturbance

The varied habitats within the SNEP program area are home to many threatened and endangered species including: roseate tern, Northeastern beach tiger beetle, bog turtle, Indiana bat, and piping plover.  Whether restoring salt marsh habitat to provide a nursery area for migratory fish or acquiring land along the coast for important foraging, resting and nesting habitat for migratory birds, SNEP staff work with partners on the ground, provide technical advice, and funding to protect and restore the native habitats of these species.
