Welcome for 2010

Piping Plovers return in April/May to nest along the beaches on Lakes Winnipeg and Manitoba and every year, the Manitoba Piping Plover Guardian Program kicks into high gear to protect the plovers, their nests, eggs and chicks from a variety of threats including human activity, off-leash dogs, all-terrain vehicles, predation by gulls, crows and a variety of smaller mammals. If you wish to help, the Program's contact information is on the left.
