Nova Scotians feel a strong connection to our stunning and diverse coastline. We have played, relaxed, and built our lives around the coast for many generations.

The coast also plays a very important role in the natural cycles that support life in our province.  Our rugged rocky shores, highly-productive salt marshes, dramatic coastal headlands and wind-swept sandy beaches support vibrant, living communities.

With more than 85% of the province’s coastal lands now in private ownership and less than 5% of the coast protected, our coastline faces ever-increasing pressures that threaten the natural communities that live there. Through our Coastal Conservation Campaign, we are committed to protecting and stewarding the best of our coastal landscapes.

Goals

  • Protect and steward the best of our undeveloped coastline
  • Build knowledge and awareness among landowners of the importance of coastal conservation and the role they can play
  • Provide resources for landowners wishing to steward their coastal properties
  • Engage local people in the stewardship of our coastal properties
