Nova Scotia Nature Trust | Nova Scotians Protecting Nova Scotia

Conservation Campaigns and Projects

The Nature Trust carries out a number of campaigns, programs, and projects that reach all across Nova Scotia. This work is sponsored by individual donors, corporations, foundations, and government grants and carried out by Nature Trust staff and volunteers. In many instances we work with partner organizations for mutually desirable goals.

A leading example of the work we do is the 100 Wild Islands Legacy Campaign. In the 100 Wild Islands wilderness, untouched white sand beaches, idyllic sheltered coves, and dramatic, windswept headlands welcome the intrepid wilderness paddler or sailor. The unique boreal rainforests, bogs and barrens, and over 250 kilometres of shoreline--have been largely undisturbed by humans for over 10,000 years. A rich diversity of birds find refuge in the islands, from majestic eagles and osprey to over 100 species of seabirds, songbirds and shorebirds. The Nature Trust is working to protect this entire archipelago, forever.

And the 100 Wild Islands is just one of our conservation projects. The menu to the right profiles some of our key projects.
