Beach nesting birds, such as piping plovers, least terns, black skimmers, and American oystercatchers are some of our most at-risk bird species in New Jersey. Join CWFNJ Senior Biologist Todd Pover to learn about their fascinating nesting behaviors, most current breeding status, and what is being done to help recover these species.

A Cape May County resident, Todd Pover is the Beach Nesting Bird Project Manager for the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. In this capacity he oversees monitoring, management, and research for beach nesting birds for the entire state. This is his 23rd year working with this fascinating group of birds here in New Jersey, and more recently he has also begun studying piping plovers on their wintering grounds in the Bahamas.

Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey (CWF) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of New Jersey’s endangered and threatened wildlife and the habitats they depend on. We carry out our mission by researching and managing rare animal species, restoring habitat, educating New Jersey’s residents, and engaging volunteers in our conservation projects.
