A barrier island located roughly one hundred miles off Nova Scotia’s coast,

Sable Island’s rich history includes centuries of shipwrecks, critical weather monitoring, and a robust ecology of seals, vibrant marine habitat, and hundreds of rare birds found nowhere else on earth. Its famous wild horses symbolize the island’s untamed wilderness and attract a community of supporters from around the globe.

The Green Horse Society’s efforts include restoration of this barrier island, the coast’s first line of defense against the devastating impact of wind and waves, particularly as the sea has slowly risen over the Continental Shelf. We support the Society’s stewardship of the island’s natural and cultural heritage.
