CPAWS bioblitz at Chignecto bolsters conservation


CPAWS has just finished a mini-bioblitz in the Chignecto area of Nova Scotia, working with experts who identified 73 species of birds over 3-days in an area proposed for protection by the provincial government.  We also identified a couple of rare species, including two species that are nationally-significant and listed by COSEWIC (e.g. olive-sided flycatcher and rusty blackbird).  Once Chignecto is officially protected, this will be the largest new protected area established in Nova Scotia in over a decade.  Thanks to everybody who helped out.
