  • 20 miles long and 1 mile wide, Sable Island lies 100 miles off the coast of Nova Scotia at the edge of the continental shelf. This isolated island is at the brink of vast oil and natural gas deposits. Presents an example of ecologists and the oil industry working closely together within established guidelines to protect the natural ecology of the island and its sea gulls, harbor seals and wild horses.
