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.
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 coastal 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.
Opportunities to protect a coastal island wilderness of this scale and significance are increasingly rare across the planet. That’s why Nova Scotians are so lucky to have this pristine wilderness right in our own backyard.
