Ian Fife has a Master of Science degree from Trent University. Most of his work experience has been with birds, working in various ecosystems of North America from the Carolinian and Boreal forests to the Canadian Prairies and the Arctic.  He is currently the Piping Plover biologist with Ontario Parks Southeast Zone in Peterborough.

For the past 30 years breeding pairs of Piping Plovers have been absent from Ontario. However, since 2007 they have been making a gradual return at selected nesting sites on the shores of the Great Lakes.  The Federal and Provincial governments and local agencies cooperate to protect these Endangered shorebirds and their habitat. Trained volunteer ‘plover guardians’ also play a vital role.

Join Ian Fife for a “good news” story about the return of the Piping Plover!
