SEA GIRT - It's going to take $50 million to restore migratory bird habitats destroyed by Sandy, according to several conservation groups.

Piping Plovers are an endangered migratory bird species that once made their home in an area of Sea Girt. Sandy destroyed the fenced-in area, which is now completely flat.

A recent report from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, along with the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, is calling for $50 million to repair migratory bird habitats across the state.

In addition to Sea Girt, similar habitats in Middle Township are in need of repairs after Sandy.
