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. These species are in decline, often because of human activities. Fortunately, we also have the opportunity to save these species. 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.
