From the smallest flitting butterfly to the playful whale, the Bay of Fundy has a variety of wildlife that will leave you spellbound.
Whether you are a weathered hiker, or simply out for a picnic, wildlife is all around. White-tailed deer are often seen grazing in fields around sundown, and eagles are always being spotted fishing for dinner on the rivers. Whales and dolphins migrate to the Bay of Fundy every summer to feed, and are an astonishing sight to see.
There is simply no end to the list of creatures you can encounter during your stay on the Fundy Coast. However, if you want to get up close and personal, the Bay of Fundy is home to the Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park, in Shubenacadie. The park is a rehabilitation facility for wild animals that may have been injured, or otherwise cannot be released into the wild. This gives us humans a chance to learn about their behaviors and habitats. The Park is also home to the Greenwing Legacy Centre, featuring Ducks Unlimited waterfowl and wetland interpretive trails and centre.
Other Provincial Parks including Blomidon, Five Islands and Cape Chignecto also provide unparalleled opportunities to be "at one" with nature, while local whale watching, rafting, cycling, hiking and kayaking excursions offer guided opportunities to view a variety of wildlife as well.
