Piping Plover Nesting Sanctuary

The Piping Plover is one of Canada's rarest birds; only a few dozen remain in the Great Lakes region. In recent years the tiny shore bird has reestablished its former nesting range on sandy shorelines and dunes such as Sauble Beach with the help of local conservation groups and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. The plover nests from May to August along the north end of the beach where protective cages have been set up to guard the nests against predators such as gulls, hawks and cats. Plovers are not shy, but they are easily disturbed when they have chicks, so visitors should leave them plenty of space and keep pets leashed so they do not harass the birds.
