Simpsons Island is one of two islands The Nature Conservancy of Canada protects in the Passamaquoddy Bay. Both Simpsons Island and Pendleton Island are representative coastal habitats of the region and support coastal forests, rocky shores, and sandy beaches as well as many coastal and marine wildlife that depend on these ecosystems. Simpson Island attracts a large variety of shorebirds along its beaches and is home to a nesting pair of Bald Eagles. NCC acquired this land in 2001 and has since been working hard to keep the shores clean of garbage and debris, which often accumulates along its beaches.
