Six national parks — Forillon, Kouchibouguac, Fundy, Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton Highlands, and
Kejimkujik — preserve this region’s coastal areas. Forillon, a domain of boreal forest and sheer cliffs, is home to bird and marine life. Prince Edward Island National Park,
a seashore of shifting sand, is the habitat for many birds, including the endangered piping plover. Situated in central Nova Scotia, the inland portion of Kejimkujik National Park safeguards a primeval forest.
A map of Canada highlights the Atlantic region, which then recedes and is replaced by a more detailed map of the region. Lines divide the map into three labelled zones:
• Northwest Atlantic
• Atlantic Maritime
Clicking on any of them opens a text box with detailed information on the ecozone.
