Fundy Region 


 Our Work 








There are plenty of resources available online where you can learn more about the Bay of Fundy, migratory shorebirds, and the conservation of the upper Bay of Fundy. The websites below will get you started; this list is by no means comprehensive. 

Fundy Forum

General site that contains wide variety of information about the Bay of Fundy ecosystem. 



Sherm’s Tide Charts

Comprehensive charting of tide times and characteristics for the Minas Basin region.  Essential for anyone interested in tracking tidal activity in the Bay of Fundy, but somewhat technical.



Bay of Fundy Ecosystem Partnership
The Bay of Fundy Ecosystem Partnership (BOFEP) is a "Virtual Institute" open to individuals and groups that seek the well-being of the Bay of Fundy.  This is largely a science-based collective that works in close cooperation with local communities and community organisations.



Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History

All you want to know about Nova Scotia’s natural history and more.



The Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN)
WHSRN is a voluntary, non-regulatory coalition that identifies and promotes conservation of crucial sites for shorebirds. Portions of the upper Bay of Fundy are part of WHSRN’s network of crucial shorebird sites.




The Ramsar organisation coordinates national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources.


BirdLife International
Canada's Important Bird Areas program is a science-based initiative to identify, conserve and monitor a network of sites, including two in the upper Bay of Fundy, that provide essential habitat for Canada's bird populations.
