Glooscap is a figure that features heavily in Mikmaq creation stories. One favourite is that when Glooscap slept, Nova Scotia was his bed, and Prince Edward Island was his pillow. This statue can be outside the Glooscap Interpretive Centre in Truro, N.S.
Sable Island in the Atlantic off the coast of Nova Scotia has a thriving population of wild horses. The Sable Island horses are among the few wild horse populations that are entirely unmanaged: they are not subject to any kind of human interference. The Sable Island horses have had legal protection under the Sable Island Regulations of the Canada Shipping Act since 1961.
