Nova Scotian environmentalist and journalist Silver Donald Cameron has written a beautiful article about the 100 Wild Islands, entitled Treasured Islands, for the December 2015 issue of Canadian Geographic Magazine. The magazine hit newsstands in January, and features stunning photography by nature photographer Nick Hawkins.

We're thrilled that the significance and potential of this project and the beauty and richness of the 100 Wild Islands have captured the imagination of the folks at Canadian Geographic, and thrilled as well that the story of Paul Gauthier's role in bringing this initiative to life features so prominently in the article.
