Wallace Bay National Wildlife Area Management Plan
The Wallace Bay National Wildlife Area (NWA) is in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia. It was established in 1980 in order to protect coastal wetlands. The NWA has an area of 783 hectares. It covers the western portion of Wallace Bay and a portion of surrounding land. Habitats include salt and freshwater marshes and an upland area.
Wallace Bay NWA has a long history of human use. Today, people may use the NWA for traditional land uses, such as hunting, fishing, and trapping. Federal and provincial regulations apply. There is a parking lot and boat launch for public use.
NWAs are protected and managed under the Canada Wildlife Act. This management plan pairs with protection provided for existing Aboriginal or treaty rights.
