state of the birds address coming up

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar will present the first ever US state of the birds address tomorrow afternoon. This brings together info from USFWS, U.S. Geological Survey, state government wildlife agencies, and even non-governmental organizations like Audubon and ABC etc.

I hope he mentions what an awesome job people in Massachusetts have done with bringing back the piping plover.

Hi, I'm an Environmental Biology Student (transferring from Cape Cod Community College in the fall) and I currently live in Brewster. Just curious if you had any insight into the lovley world of internship involving Piping Plovers. I live only 10 minutes from the Outer Beach at Nauset Beach and I would so love to work studying nests and keeping track of the safe-keeping of these lovley birds.
Please email me if you have any bright ideas. I already signed up for updates on potential jobs with Orleans Parks and Beaches Dept., nothing so far this year regarding the Plovers. :(

Thanks for any info you can provide!
