In East Sandwich, Massachusetts, biologists from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are using a special computer to study the potential threat from land-based wind turbines and other construction to endangered piping plovers, according to an article in the Cape Cod Times.
The multiyear study of the plovers by researchers from State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry is taking place on Cape Cod and in New Jersey. It’s funded with $295,000 from the Fish and Wildlife Service supplemented by grants from the Goldenrod Foundation and the Garden Club of America.
