Owls Head Provincial Park is one of the very few remaining pristine natural publicly owned coastal properties in Nova Scotia. Large undisturbed coastal areas are not well represented in the Protected areas plan so they are valuable to the biodiversity of our province. The park lands are home to an ancient botanical collection that evolved since the last Ice Age and remained relatively intact due in part to the character of the landscape. This valuable park resource should never have been secretly removed from its protected status as site 694 in the plan that was created and endorsed by the citizens of Nova Scotia. To then offer to sell it to an American developer who will destroy its ecological integrity is a betrayal of the clear public interest.
