U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region


Imagine a world without apples, bananas or avocados. Or a world without chocolate. Or even coffee.

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.

Today is Endangered Species Day, meaning it’s time to celebrate the efforts made to conserve endangered species, as well as learn a little about what you can do to help these struggling fish and wildlife.
