About This Site

This site promotes the conservation of migratory shorebirds in eastern Canada’s Bay of Fundy region, with a particular focus on the Minas Basin, Nova Scotia.

Explore the site to learn about:

  • the incredible migratory cycle of shorebirds
  • why the upper Bay of Fundy is key to the survival of sandpipers and other shorebirds
  • efforts to conserve shorebirds and their habitat in Fundy
  • the importance of Minas’ mud flats

Migrating shorebirds use the Bay of Fundy as a resting and feeding stopover.
