The Belleisle Marsh Wildlife Management Area Project was initiated in 1990 as part of the North America Waterfowl Management Plan. The province purchased 283 ha (700 ac) of the broad low marsh to be protected as a waterfowl habitat. However, located on the rich alluvial plain of the Annapolis River, Belleisle Marsh includes some of the most productive agricultural land in the Nova Scotia. So, 69 ha (170 ac) were left as wetlands, and 135 ha (333 ac) are being managed as upland habitat, but 79 ha (195 ac) are being used for agricultural production.
