Request for Proposals: 100 Wild Islands Management Strategy

In partnership with the Province of Nova Scotia and other land owners, the Nature Trust is developing a comprehensive joint management strategy for the 100 Wild Islands coastal wilderness, which stretches from Clam Harbour Provincial Park to Taylor Head Provincial Park. This work is happening in conjunction with the Wild Islands Tourism Advancement Partnership (, which is aimed at advancing tourism on the Eastern Shore and creating a broader management planning strategy for the entire Eastern Shore Islands Wilderness Area. The Nature Trust is a partner organization on the WITAP project, and this management strategy will ensure that the unique natural values within the 100 Wild Islands are protected, while allowing for appropriate, low-impact recreational activities.

In order to inform the development of the management strategy, inventory and analysis work will be undertaken to document and better understand the area's ecological and recreational attributes. This will include a review of existing research and understanding, stakeholder and community consultations, the identification of knowledge gaps, ecological and recreation field surveys, ecological and recreation inventories, and sensitivity and opportunity mapping and zonation. The Nature Trust and Nova Scotia Environment have developed three requests for proposals, and we are seeking applications from qualified consultants to complete the work described in each RFP.
