The Nova Scotia Nature Trust has preserved yet another outstanding piece of Canada’s coastal legacy by protecting one of Nova Scotia’s largest and most ecologically important coastal islands. At 530 acres, Borgles Island is highly significant for its unique biodiversity and ancient forests and coastal ecosystems.

At the Nature Trust’s annual gala dinner in Halifax last night, the organization announced it had acquired Borgles Island, a rugged, beautiful and undeveloped island on Nova Scotia’s eastern shore near Ship Harbour. Previously slated for development, the island is now part of the Nature Trust’s 8000 acre protected areas network, set aside for nature, and for future generations of Nova Scotians to enjoy and explore.
