Sable Is­land Na­tional Park Re­serve

Canadian Wildlife - - BIGGER PICTURE -

Some 175 kilo­me­tres off the Nova Sco­tia coast­line, cres­cent-shaped Sable Is­land is buf­feted by churn­ing ocean waters and the fury of North At­lantic weather sys­tems. The is­land is most fa­mous for its pop­u­la­tion of wild horses — likely de­scen­dants of Aca­dian horses — that graze on its mar­ram grass. The harsh weather con­di­tions, plus Sable’s sandy soil, mean nat­u­ral trees are non-ex­is­tent.
