Effective management of vulnerable beach nesting birds

Several bird species nesting directly on beaches et laying their eggs on the ground, without any protection, are especially vulnerable to environmental conditions (erosion, storm, wind,...) but also to predation and human activities.
Even if they developed numerous techniques to deal with this changing environment or avoid predators, quick changes that occur actually, in conjunction with a drastic loss of "natural" habitats, place a great burden on these species.
Trough 4 study cases, two in France and two in England, the partners of the PANACHE project tried to find the best suitable ways to protect little terns and Kentish plover where they still try to nest.
Results, variable depending on the site and the species, highlight recommendation and perspectives to better protect them in the future.
