Recovery Outline for the Rufa Red Knot (Calidris canutus rufa) O 5 New Jersey Ecological Services Field Office (609) 646-9310 Red knot Calidris canutus rufa 2 3 Avoid and minimize loss and degradation of nonbreeding habitat from coastal engineering and development. a. Work through the Atlantic Flyway Shorebird Initiative's (AFSI) Coastal Engineering Committee (Habitat Work Group) to develop best practices. b. Work with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and the States to adopt the best practices at the landscape- and project-level scales (e.g., through sections 7(a)(l) and 7(a)(2) of the ESA). c. Focus on documented red knot staging areas, as well as regularly used stopover and wintering habitats. When possible, pursue multispecies conservation opportunities that also benefit other State or federally listed species.

Recovery Outline for the Rufa Red Knot (Calidris canutus rufa) O 5 New Jersey Ecological Services Field Office (609) 646-9310 Red knot Calidris canutus rufa 2 4 Work with partners to preserve, enhance, and restore nonbreeding habitat, both proactively and incidental to engineering and development projects. For example, carefully planned beach nourishment can increase or improve red knot habitat in some areas, such as parts of Delaware Bay.

Recovery Outline for the Rufa Red Knot (Calidris canutus rufa) O 5 New Jersey Ecological Services Field Office (609) 646-9310 Red knot Calidris canutus rufa 2 5 Develop Service recommendations for managing recreation and other sources of human disturbance in red knot nonbreeding habitats. In developing the recommendations, build on related work being done by the National Wildlife Refuge System, through the AFSI's Human Activities Committee (Habitat Working Group), and in the piping plover wintering range. Work with land managers and project proponents to implement the Service recommendations. Also work with recreation user groups (e.g., fishermen) to enlist support for minimizing disturbance of red knots. Ongoing Current FY 2019 National Park Service, Local Partners, State Governments, U.

Recovery Outline for the Rufa Red Knot (Calidris canutus rufa) O 5 New Jersey Ecological Services Field Office (609) 646-9310 Red knot Calidris canutus rufa 3 11 Establish a Red Knot Information Partnership of interested species experts, researchers, and conservation practitioners from across the species’ range. Facilitate the exchange of information by establishing an email listserve and perhaps other electronic tools/platforms. Hold an annual conference call or webinar to discuss collaborative research, new advances in red knot science, new information about threats, and new developments in conservation. Hold ad hoc conference calls or webinars to address urgent issues as they arise.
