Minimum Requirements Decision Guide - Predator Management for the Threatened Piping Plover at Holgate and Little Beach Island at E.B. Forsythe NWR

Metadata Updated: January 29, 2020

Edwin 8. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge wilderness areas were originally identified as such because they were never physically modified by humans. The result of this action provides exceptional nesting habitats of the federally listed piping plover (Charadrius melodus), particularly at Holgate and Little Beach Island. As a critical area for nesting piping plovers, impacts from predatory animals such as fox, mink, raccoons, opossum, and various gull species, can have a devastating effect on nesting piping plover populations as well as other beach nesting shorebirds.

Because this is a management action that will be conducted within the wilderness area, there are no alternatives for this type of work outside of the wilderness area
