Can the Plover Save New York? Unexpected lessons from an endangered shorebird.

 

Gund Fellow, Joe Roman, just published an article in Slate discussing plovers, Sandy, climate change, land use policies, adaptation, and adaptability.  He concludes, "The choice is clear: We can continue on the course of denial and heartbreak that we’ve followed in recent decades, building on unstable islands, fortifying shorelines with sea walls that will not restrain storm surges. Or we can think on our feet, like the plover." It is a great piece, found here: Can the Plover Save New York? Unexpected lessons from an endangered shorebird.
