Bay of Fundy

The Bay of Fundy is a globally significant ecosystem, containing the world’s highest tides and important habitat for whales and migratory shorebirds. Salt marshes found along the coastline offer protection against storm surges and act as a carbon sink, removing and storing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Unfortunately, despite its ecological significance and the important role it plays for coastal communities, very little of the Bay of Fundy is actually protected.
