Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation Background:
The Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation is a charitable organization that addresses the environmental concerns in the South Shore region of Nova Scotia, and was established in December 1993. Coastal Action's goal is to promote the restoration, enhancement, and conservation of our ecosystem through research, education, and action. Coastal Action is involved in many environmental projects including species at risk, watershed-based, and environmental education projects. Coastal Action receives direction from a volunteer Board of Directors supported through a full-time Executive Director.
