Expanded in February 2020, the Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC’s) 79-hectare (194-acre) Abram-Village Nature Reserve, west of Summerside, surrounds one of Prince Edward Island’s most impressive and undisturbed salt marshes. Intact salt marshes are productive, valuable ecosystems that support a huge diversity of plants, birds, insects and marine life. With only one per cent of PEI made up of salt marshes, it's vital to protect those that remain.
The Abram-Village Nature Reserve is a birder’s dream. Common tern, bald eagle, great blue heron, cedar waxwing, willet and even the rare Nelson’s sharp-tailed sparrow can all be seen on the mud flats or heard calling from the wetlands.
The Abram-Village salt marsh needs further protection, and NCC is working on it! By supporting this conservation project, you are helping increase the overall protected area on the Island, ensuring local and visiting wildlife will always have salt marsh habitat in Egmont Bay and creating a natural legacy for future generations.
