On a recent visit to Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, U.S. Fish and Wildlife staff discussed the various Hurricane Sandy restoration projects underway at the expansive 3,000-acre portion of the Great Marsh in Newburyport, Massachusetts.
This past week, I trekked down to visit some of the recently-restored beaches in Southern New Jersey, and witnessed some incredible red knot banding along the way.
With the hurricane season set to begin on June 1, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service continues to work with partners on post-Sandy restoration efforts designed to benefit fish and wildlife while protecting communities from future flooding and storm surge.
