Red Knot Update

Red knot in breeding plumageI’ve written before about the little red knot (What’s not to like about the Red Knot?) – those incredible birds that migrate from pole to pole each year and are currently in danger of extinction within the next 10 years.  Elly Pepper, of the NRDC, had the chance this summer to work on a red knot conservation project, so I thought I’d provide you with her latest update.  Want to learn more about the red knot?  Be sure to check out the PBS video, Crash: A Tale of Two Species.
