“It’s one of about 90 or so sites that have been identified across the province for their conservation value and are awaiting legal designation, or to be made official by the provincial government,” says Caitlin Grady with the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.
The area is home to a variety of animal species and marine life, and Grady says it is made up of wetlands, coastal barrens, and beaches.
“It’s very important habitat to species at risk, like piping plovers which nest on the beaches, barn swallows, a number of other bird species that are of conservation concern,” she tells NEWS 95.7’s The Rick Howe Show.
