Bay of Fundy

Bay of Fundy

Resting between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in Canada, the Bay of Fundy's abundant upwelling zones draw more than 12 species of whales, as well as humpback, fin and the endangered North Atlantic right whale. Millions of shorebirds flock to the salt marshes and mudflats on the Bay's shores every year during their migrations to feast on mud shrimp. The Bay of Fundy is also home to large reefs formed by horse mussels, a species in which only a few are known to exist in the entire world. Unfortunately, the area has become increasingly industrialized, with the Canadian government acting slowly to make a motion to protect the area. Luckily, organizations like the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society have been working tirelessly to push for an official Marine Protected Area status for the Bay of Fundy, a move that will shield countless sensitive marine species from destruction from future industrialization.
