The Bay of Fundy is well-known for having the highest tides on the planet (16.2 metres height). One hundred billion tonnes of sea water flow in and out of the Bay of Fundy twice every day – more water than the collective flow of all the world’s fresh water rivers. Fundy’s extreme tides create a vibrant and diverse maritime ecosystem. The Bay is renowned for its coastal rock formations, tremendous tidal effects (vertical, horizontal, rapids and bores) and sustainable coastal development. It is also a decisive international feeding ground for migratory birds, a pulsating habitat for rare and endangered Right whales, and one of the world’s most significant plant and animal fossil discovery regions.
