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.
Fortunately, we can take action to help save these species by preserving and protecting their habitats. 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.
Thank You to Our Partners
We collaborate with conservation partners to advance the science and practice of conservation biology in Nova Scotia. Together we contribute to the identification of priority lands for protection and to the creation and operation of monitoring programs. We also support Recovery Teams working to regenerate at-risk species.
These groups are key in helping us learn more about and prioritise our work on endangered species:
