Proposed new protected areas in Nova Scotia will help protect the endangered Acadian forests of North America
(2013-05-01) The proposed new protected areas currently being examined by the Nova Scotia government would conserve an additional 124,000 hectares of large intact forests, raising the overall level of protection to about 46% of all remaining large intact forests in the province.
“This would be a significant contribution to protecting large intact forests in the critically-endangered Acadian forests of North America.” says Peter Lee, Executive Director of Global Forest Watch Canada. “With these new protected areas, about half of all remaining large intact forests in Nova Scotia will soon be protected if the government of Nova Scotia proceeds.”
