Nova Scotia is home to spectacular rivers, lakes and wetlands, upon which all Nova Scotians depend.
These beautiful and wild landscapes provide refuge to some of Canada’s most unique and endangered species, and support a diversity of critical ecological services from drinking water supply to flood prevention.
Yet these freshwater landscapes face unprecedented impacts. The resultant habitat loss is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity. There is an urgent need to permanently protect important freshwater habitats before it’s too late. We are working to preserve freshwater habitats, by protecting the land through which freshwater flows.
