Update Jan 29, 2019: Nova Scotia naturalists take province to court in attempt to enforce Endangered Species Act
Alexander Quon, Global News “It’s not trying to change policies; it’s trying to get them to actually enact the words that they have in their own legal system and are ignoring.” “Normally, naturalists are a quiet bunch that like to admire nature. In this particular case, they’ve seen too much,” – Bob Bancroft
Update Jan 28, 2019: GoFundMe Campaign: Legal action – Nova Scotia Species at Risk Act “ “For anyone wishing to contribute by cheque toward the Species at Risk lawsuit launched against the Government of Nova Scotia by Bob Bancroft and others, the mailing address is Blomidon Naturalists Society, c/o Ed Sulis, 107 Canaan Ave.,Kentville, NS B4N 2A7.

I have learned that “After intense deliberation, the board of the Halifax Field Naturalists has decided to support the lawsuit by becoming co-litigants, as has the Blomidon Naturalists Society.”
