Description: The South Spit is home to three federally endangered species. The Humboldt Bay wallflower and beach layia are listed as endangered while the western snowy plover is listed as threatened. The Endangered Species Act obligates federal agencies to monitor species and implement actions to help the species recover. Monitoring is a critical component of habitat work as there is no other if the habitat work is successful. This project will monitor western snowy plover use at South Spit and other BLM managed beach areas. Monitoring will occur approximately twice per week during the breeding season, March 1- September 5, and once per month during the non-breeding season. Survey effort may be adjusted based on the amount of nesting activity.
