Canada | Nearshore Nova Scotia island gets PA status

One of southwestern Nova Scotia’s most beloved offshore islands that is steeped in local history and culture has been a beacon for mariners since 1831. Renowned as a migratory bird site, it’s now been conserved by the Nova Scotia Nature Trust. 

The 650-acre Seal Island Conservation Lands, encompassing nearly 80 per cent of the island, was announced and celebrated on Aug. 16 at a community event in Clark’s Harbour. Many in attendance had family connections to Seal Island that go back generations.
