John Lusby Marsh National Wildlife Area: management plan
John Lusby Marsh National Wildlife Area (NWA) is in Nova Scotia. The 552-hectare NWA was established in 1978 for the conservation of significant Upper Bay of Fundy saltmarsh. The John Lusby Salt Marsh represents about 12 percent of the remaining Bay of Fundy saltmarshes. This natural feature is of regional importance as a staging site for spring and fall migrant shorebird and waterfowl species.
This management plan provides detailed information about John Lusby Marsh NWA, including:
- a description of the area
- its ecological resources
- the challenges and threats it faces
- habitat and wildlife management

All NWAs are protected and managed under the Canada Wildlife Act. This management plan pairs with protection provided for existing Aboriginal or treaty rights.
