About this book

Sable Island is a storied place. This remote, 50-km-long, emergent sandbar, located at the very edge of the continental shelf off Nova Scotia, has been the locale of hundreds of tragic shipwrecks, brave rescues of stranded mariners, and home to many thousands of seals and hundreds of wild horses. It was because of its famous natural and historical features that Sable Island was made a new national park of Canada in 2013. From this freshly conferred status, there emerged a need to develop a management plan for the island, to ensure that its key natural features would be conserved. Profusely illustrated with photographs, line drawings, and tables, Sable Island: Explorations in Ecology and Biodiversity also provides prudent recommendations for the ongoing research and stewardship of Sable Island.
