Kejimkujik National Park’s Seaside Closed Due To Black Bear Activity

Parks Canada has shut down the ever popular Kejimkujik Seaside because of black bear activity. The Seaside closes when black bear activity does not permit safe access.

“The safety of visitors and staff, and risk factors are carefully considered when making decisions to temporarily close a national park,” Parks Canada said in a news release.

“To protect visitors and wildlife, the closure is put in place by order of the Superintendent.” 

This temporary closure is for Kejimkujik Seaside only. Kejimkujik Seaside is located in Port Joli on the coast of the South Shore, Nova Scotia.

“The black bear population at Kejimkujik Seaside is healthy, thanks to the largely undisturbed habitat and abundant food supply. The increased activity being observed is not unusual. It is likely the bears will move away from the shoreline as food becomes more plentiful in the woods.”

Hi there, it's Nick again continuing today's @capturenovascotia takeover with one of my favourite places in Nova Scotia, Keji. Designated a dark sky preserve, Kejimkujik is one of the best places in the province for viewing the night sky. I'm looking forward to getting back there, camping under the stars! @nick_osbourne . . . . . . . . #capturenovascotia #milkyway #milkywaychasers #nightphotography #nightscape #astrophotography #halifax #novascotia #visitnovascotia #canada #parkscanada #kejimkujik #keji #mycanadianphotos #explorethecoast #halifaxnoise #igers_novascotia #discovernovascotia #discoverhalifax #explorenovascotia #cbcns #share_cangeo
