We Are Green!
PEI’s landscape is a bustling habitat for many different plant & animal species. At Twin Shores we are proud to have an undeveloped conservation area on-site home to some of these precious Island treasures
Piping Plover, endangered shore bird
Bobolink, threatened farmland bird
Barn Swallow, threatened bird
North Shore sand dunes
These bird species may be found in or near the grassy-covered dunes at the Proffit’s Point Beach.
We ask that you respect this natural habitat which serves as a refuge and breeding area.
The Piping Plover
Twin Shores is very fortunate to have some of the only remaining Piping Plovers left on PEI. The Piping Plover is a small shore bird that may be found on our
Profitt's Point beach. These rare little birds are extremely sensitive to any disturbances during their
breeding season, which is May to July.
Piping Plover nests are small depression in the sand
lined by a few shells and small pebbles. They are very difficult to see even when looking for them.
If disturbed, the nesting Plover will leave the nest which often results in a loss of eggs.
People who encounter a nest should carefully walk towards the water, leaving the nesting area immediately.
