100 Wild Islands: Protecting One of North America’s last great coastal island wildernesses
The Nova Scotia Nature Trust is embarking on one of the most significant coastal conservation campaigns in Nova Scotia’s history. The campaign’s ambitious goal is to protect, forever, a vast archipelago of over one hundred wild coastal islands.
This island wilderness, nestled between Clam Harbour beach and Mushaboom Harbour, is one of the province’s least known, yet greatest natural treasures. The islands’ diverse habitats, from sand beaches, idyllic lagoons, forests, bogs and barrens, and 350 acres of saltmarsh and wetlands have gone largely undisturbed by humans for more than 10,000 years. They support a rich diversity of wildlife, including over 100 species of birds, from eagles and osprey to seabirds and songbirds.
