How You Can Help
Put food scraps and fishing line in garbage cans, not on the beach.
Stay out of dunes. Not all nesting areas are marked and dunes harbor sensitive wildlife species.
Don’t walk through flocks of birds or approach individual birds too close to make them fly. They may be nesting or resting after a long migration.
Stay out of posted areas. There may be nests or young in the roped off areas, even if you can’t see them.
Follow beach rules about pets. Birds see dogs as predators and their presence will cause them to alter their behavior and even abandon nests.
Learn to identify and appreciate birds!
