On 9 September 2012 Herald News reported:
Acadia University signed an historic agreement Saturday, making it the first university in Canada to formally protect ecologically important land that it owns. The conservation easement agreement the university signed with the Nova Scotia Nature Trust protects Bon Portage Island in perpetuity while ensuring students and faculty can continue to do research there. The agreement also bans mining and forestry on the island. The island is a 15-minute boat ride from Shag Harbour, Shelburne County. It is designated as an important bird area by BirdLife International because it is an important stop for migratory shore birds and raptors, said Bonnie Sutherland, the trust's executive director. It also has a rich diversity of vegetation.
