Egrets feed along the shore at Assateague Island in Maryland. Despite many efforts that have been made to increase their population, egrets are still in danger. When wetlands and marshes are polluted by chemicals, pesticides, or just plain garbage, the egret's nesting sites are destroyed. This causes a reduction in the number of successful nestings.
