In November of 2007, The Bay of Fundy was designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.  The 4487 sq Km reserve includes the forested coast and tidal shore of New Brunswick's upper Bay of Fundy, stretching from St. Martins to the Tantramar Marsh near the Nova Scotia border.

Bay of Fundy – Hopewell Rocks

The Hopewell Rocks Park 

 

Hopewell Rocks, situated at the head of the Bay of Fundy, is one of New Brunswick’s most outstanding Provincial Parks and is the tourism icon used to showcase New Brunswick and the spectacular Bay of Fundy.  The sandstone and conglomerate “flowerpot rock” formations, carved by giant tides that regularly exceed the height of a four and a half story building, are a geological wonder that has attracted visitors from the world over. 

 

Bay of Fundy – Mary’s Point

Shepody Bay Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve

 

Shorebirds are among nature's most ambitious, long-distance migrants. The Western Hemispheric Reserve Network was established to protect strategic international sites that are critical to the shorebirds survival.  Mary’s Point Shorebird Reserve was the first site to receive designation within the network, that now includes 69 sites in 9 countries,

stretching from Alaska in the north to Tierra del Fuego in southern South America.

 

Fundy National Park – Point Wolfe

Fundy National Park 

 

Fundy National Park encompasses some of the last remaining wilderness in southern New Brunswick and features two major environmental systems: the marine coastal environment of the Bay of Fundy and the Caledonia Highlands plateau (part of the Appalachian Mountain range) with its deeply cut river valleys.  The Park offers a variety of interpretive programs, hiking trails and other recreational activities and is serviced by the nearby Village of Alma.

The gorge is cut into the Fundy Plateau, and has a peak elevation of 400 metres.
