Sable Island National Park Proposal     

Located 290 km offshore from Halifax, Sable Island is a windswept crescent-shaped sandbar 42 km long that emerges from the Atlantic Ocean near the edge of the Continental Shelf. The island’s sand dunes and fresh water ponds are home to over 400 wild horses and numerous migrant and breeding birds, including the rare Ipswich Savannah sparrow.
