As many of you know, we spend a lot of time each year working in cooperation with the Tern and Plover Conservation Partnership on Interior Least Tern and Piping Plover protection, monitoring and research.  Below is a link to the Platte Basin Timelapse project’s educational multimedia story featuring the Tern and Plover Conservation Partnership and work being done with sand and gravel mining companies along the lower Platte River to protect nesting Interior Least Terns and Piping Plovers.
