CPAWS is Canada’s voice for wilderness

The Nova Scotia Chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS-NS) works to protect Nova Scotia’s rich natural heritage. We advocate for the creation of new protected areas, on land and in the ocean, and we work to ensure that existing protected areas are well-managed for ecological integrity. Some of our landmark campaigns include the protection of Sable Island, Bay of Fundy, and Blue Mountain – Birch Cove Lakes. In total, we have helped to establish more than 150 new protected areas in Nova Scotia.
