2000 square kilometres in Nova Scotia!

After a number of years of working to identify conservation areas with the Nova Scotia government, CPAWS NS is celebrating an incredible announcement yesterday by the provincial government. 2000 square kilometres of new areas were identified for conservation. In a small province like Nova Scotia, this is pretty impressive.

It's quite an incredible thing for any government to dedicate an additional 3.5% of its land to protected areas at once. It is particularly noteworthy for a province that is so densely populated and has a long history of settlement and development in southern Canada.

Congrats to the Nova Scotia government on taking such visionary leadership for our planet. Well done!
