Migratory shorebirds, like the rufa red knot, need particular areas to refuel and rest along their 18,000+ mile annual journeys. Unfortunately, climate change and human activities are shrinking these areas, choking off needed habitat and leaving local communities vulnerable to sea level rise and violent coastal storms. This is why we’re proposing to establish 649,000+ acres of critical habitat across 13 states: http://ow.ly/DqUq50F7CdX.

The critical habitat designation would help focus conservation efforts in the areas along the coasts with the most rufa #redknot activity. It would also reinforce ongoing and continued conservation of red knots and other coastal wildlife and habitats in coordination with local, state and federal partners.
