Aquatic species at risk are species that are disappearing from freshwater and saltwater habitats. As of 2014, there are over 25 aquatic species at risk in Atlantic Canada. Aquatic species at risk in this area include fish, marine mammals, and molluscs.

The Mi’kmaw Conservation Group works with six Mi’kmaw Communities to promote and restore the concept of Netukulimk in the Bay of Fundy watershed. If you would like more information on Species at Risk, MCG’s educational tools, or stewardship projects, please contact: Knelson@mikmawconservation.ca
