Red Knot numbers are declining. Each year, scientists count and band fewer of these birds. There are many reasons for the decline but Delaware Bay crabs are definitely one of them. As with everything else in this world, protecting the Red Knot requires money. Scientists and conservationists need to get paid. Boats and planes and other equipment needs to be used. The list goes on. One way to help the Red Knot is to tell the government to list the bird on the Endangered Species List. NJ Audubon is making it easy for you to do this. Here is a link to their webpage. All you need to do is send your comment. They even provide sample letter that you can cut and paste into the comment form. Please do this and send the link to others. We need as many people as possible to help. Even if you've never seen a Red Knot, please comment.
Thank you. I don't usually ask you to take action, but this is important.
