Quick, let’s raise awareness…

August 14, 2016

…for the Snowy Plover. What a magnificent opportunity Steve Lopez has given us. On the front page of the California section (Sun. Aug. 14,’16) he dedicates his column on the conflict at Sand City near Monterey where plovers are threatened by adjacent big-time development. This is a good opportunity to post on your Facebook, instagram, twitter and say “thank you, Steve Lopez”. steve.lopez@latimes.com

Western Snowy Plovers on Santa Monica Beach. L.Plauzoles 2014

While he talks about scurrying little plovers at Sand City, I was surveying the Santa Monica site where the City had erected a fence for the past 13 years…and there wasn’t a single plover in sight! However, I found fresh dog tracks and tire tracks…Your post will help educate a few more people, and hopefully they will respect the beach as habitat at least for the rest of this summer.
