The Bay of Fundy’s rich ecosystems, including many bogs, marshes and mudflats, support the lives of numerous plants and animals.

The New Brunswick side of the Upper Bay of Fundy is home to the Fundy Biosphere Reserve, one of 531 landscapes in 105 countries designated as UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves. These 430,000 hectares – ranging along the coastline from St. Martins to the Tantramar Marshes and inland to Moncton – are one of only 15 such ecosystems in Canada. The Biosphere emphasizes the importance of conservation and sustainability in the region, as well as its uniqueness with respect to its geological formations, terrestrial and marine ecosystems and history and culture. (The Fundy Biosphere Reserve, 2011)

The Fundy Biosphere Reserve named 50 “Amazing Places” for visitors to explore:
