The most valuable islands you’ve never heard of

The most valuable islands you’ve never heard of


Off Canada’s east coast lies a little known yet incredible natural treasure - a vast and beautiful archipelago of over 100 wild islands. This is one of the last remaining intact and ecologically rich island groups of its size in North America. 

The Nova Scotia Nature Trust is leading an exciting campaign to protect this entire 100 island wilderness, forever.  And we need your help.

We've reached our initial $7 million goal! Thanks to everyone who got us to this point! And stayed tuned over the next few weeks, when we'll be launching an exciting new initiative to help fund phase 2 of 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.

Unmatched opportunities abound for exploration and discovery.

A one-time opportunity


Opportunities to protect a coastal island wilderness of this scale and significance are increasingly rare across the planet. 

We have a one-time opportunity to protect  the entire archipelago - over 100 wild islands, encompassing 7,000 acres of land - through a  unique cooperative private and public land conservation partnership.
