Coastal Waterbird Program — Wildlife Management
The Coastal Waterbird Program monitors and protects more nesting sites on the Atlantic coast than any other non-governmental entity.
Every year, from March through September, we utilize a variety of management techniques to protect nesting and migratory coastal birds from human disturbance and predators.
CWP's wildlife management techniques include:
- symbolic fencing
- electric fencing
We also consult with beach managers, local landowners, and permitting agencies on projects such as:
- dredging and beach re-nourishment
- off-road vehicle use
- beach raking
