Each year, coastal waterbirds such as Piping Plovers, Least Terns, and American Oystercatchers return to their summer homes on the Massachusetts shoreline. And each year, our Coastal Waterbird Program (CWP) team works to protect the habitats that are crucial to the continued recovery of these threatened birds.
