This Holiday Season, Consider a Different Way of Giving — Give the Gift of Nature!
Share your passion for nature with your friends, family and colleagues by giving the gift of an ecologically rich wetland or an old growth forest. Give an acre of coastal headlands, beaches and islands or help to save critical habitat for wildlife by adopting a bird, frog or turtle for the people on your holiday list. All Adopt and Island gifts will be directed to the 100 Wild Islands campaign, and will be matched dollar for dollar by Paul Gauthier.
Thanks very much to Radio Canada for covering the most recent 100 Wild Islands!

October 22 (Halifax)—The Nova Scotia Nature Trust has protected yet another significant conservation site on the eastern shore of Nova Scotia, part of its ambitious campaign to protect one of North America’s last wild and ecologically rich coastal archipelagos—the 100 Wild Islands. The new conservation lands provide a significant, natural corridor connecting the 100 Wild Islands to a vast inland freshwater wilderness.
The Nova Scotia Nature Trust’s ambitious campaign to protect the 100 Wild Islands on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore received a major conservation boost. All Crown islands within the archipelago were officially designated as Wilderness Area by the Province today. Together with the Nature Trust’s achievements in protecting private islands, 5,000 acres of ecologically rich and spectacular coastal island wilderness is now protected, forever.
