Endangered Species Campaign

Nova Scotia is home to some of Canada’s most endangered species, such as the Blanding’s Turtle, Plymouth Gentian, Piping Plover and Boreal Felt Lichen. These species are in decline, often because of human activities. Fortunately, we also have it in our power to change our behavior and save these species. The Nature Trust is making great progress in saving critical habitat for species at risk, and raising awareness about how landowners can get involved in wildlife conservation.
- Collaborate with conservation partners to advance the science and practice of conservation biology in Nova Scotia, by contributing to the identification of priority lands for protection, monitoring programs, and Recovery Teams
- Protect priority lands with endangered species and wildlife habitat, in cooperation with landowners
- Get people excited about endangered species, and teach them how to live with these great species on their properties
