Piping Plovers are an endangered species of shore birds that returned to Sauble Beach on Lake Huron after a 30-year absence. Plover Lovers are volunteer monitors who, by serving as citizen scientists on the beach, help ensure the birds’ recovery in our area through outreach and education.

Plover Lovers & COVID-19
Birds Canada (the provincial overseer of the Piping Plover Recovery Program) and Plover Lovers have placed our Sauble Beach monitoring program on hold. The provincial government has closed beaches to everyone, with no exemptions. Birds Canada and Plover Lovers have thus cancelled all plover field work for the season pending the reopening of beaches & parks.
