Addendum to the Final Recovery Strategy for the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus circumcinctus) in Canada (Final Version)

3.0: Examples of Activities that are Likely to Result in the Destruction of Critical Habitat

As critical habitat for Piping Plover circumcinctus is being identified in this addendum, examples of activities likely to result in the destruction of that habitat are also included below.

Activities that are likely to result in destruction of critical habitat include: agricultural activities (e.g. tillage, excessive cattle activity on shorelines), resource extraction (e.g. mining, oil and gas development), infrastructure development and construction (e.g. roads, pipelines, bridges or marinas), radical or lasting alterations to normal hydrological regimes (e.g. wetland drainage, construction of dams, lasting increases of water level), pollution of water or shorelines, and excessive recreational use (e.g. all-terrain vehicles, vehicular traffic).
