The Nature Conservancy of Canada buys pristine Lake Superior shoreline

Big Trout Bay, crucial habitat for peregrine falcons and other species, has been purchased by the Nature Conservancy of Canada for $8.5 million.

The protected 1,000 hectares of coastal boreal forest, which includes cliffs, cobble beaches, and large sections of open bedrock, will play a key role in the conservation of animal and plant life, such as bald eagles and rare Arctic and alpine plants.

“It’s a chance to protect the best of the best. We’re not having to rehabilitate. We can just get a piece of land and it’s an intact, functioning ecosystem that is going to be there, hopefully forever,” Gary Davies, the Northwest Program director for the NCC, told CBC.
