CBC NS - East Coast salt marshes to be restored to battle effects of climate change

25 Jun 2018 9:44 PM | Anonymous
"Swaths of salt-water marshes in the Maritimes are to be restored, in a bid to help absorb the rising sea levels and storm surges brought on by climate change.


Saint Mary's University in Halifax announced today that it will get $1.8 million in federal funds to restore 75 hectares of marshes around the Bay of Fundy.

Project leader Danika van Proosdij says the marshes will create more coastal habitat for marine life, and they will provide a new line of defence against flooding and erosion."
