The Nova Scotia Nature Trust announced new island conservation successes today, as part of its exciting 100 Wild Islands Legacy Campaign. A large and enthusiastic crowd at a community celebration in Murphy’s Cove, on the eastern shore, welcomed news of another 275 acres of protected areas on the islands they have treasured for generations.

The new conservation lands are one kilometer offshore from Popes Harbour, on Gerard Island, one of the largest islands in Nova Scotia. The 800 acre island is nestled between the Nature Trust’s existing conservation lands at Shelter Cove and Taylors Head Provincial Park.
