The Problem With Plovers


The Problem

There are many endangered species in the world but have you ever wondered why they're endangered? I have. I chose the Piping Plover and researched it. What I really wanted to know about though, was Global Warming. So a question grew in my mind, will Global Warming affect the Piping Plovers life?
