Saving Turtles

Southwestern Nova Scotia is one of the most important freshwater landscapes in Nova Scotia and it provides one of the last refuges in Canada for the endangered Blanding's Turtle. Approximately 350 of these species remain in the province and they face increasing threats from habitat loss and disturbance. To date, the Nature Trust has 8 conservation lands in this region that provide a natural corridor of intact habitats that are essential for the turtles and other imperiled species that depend on them for survival.
