Protecting Important Shorebird Habitat Using Piping Plovers as an Indicator Species

(2011-2014) – This project involved capture and radiotracking of Piping Plovers in the Corpus Christi Bay/Mustang Island area, and the Galveston Bay/Galveston Island area to determine the full range of habitat usage. We also conducted a series of beach surveys to assess the effects of different types of management on bird distribution.
