The Semipalmated Sandpiper is one of the more common “peeps” we see along the Atlantic Coast. Shorebird populations as a whole show a significant decline and without immediate cooperative conservation efforts, the outlook is grim.
ACJV staff and partners work together to implement the strategies outline in the Atlantic Flyway Shorebird Conservation Business Strategy. The Strategy involves numerous federal, state, provincial, and local governments, conservation groups, universities and individuals. The business strategy approach emphasizes the involvement of scientists, advocates, funders and other practitioners all working together for prioritized, on-the-ground actions that move toward specific, measurable outcomes.
