The habitat program has two broad divisions: terrestrial habitats and wetland and coastal habitats.

The terrestrial program works with the forestry and agricultural communities to protect and enhance wildlife habitat. We monitor trends in provincial wildlife habitats, maintain an inventory of the province's significant wildlife habitats, recommend management actions to the appropriate agencies and support enforcement and development of guidelines and regulations.

The Habitats program is responsible, in partnership with other governmental and non governmental agencies, industry, and the public, for the conservation and sustainable use of Nova Scotia's habitats and associated wildlife resources.

The department also has a Habitat Conservation manual. This publication is available free by contacting:
