NS is a small Province, not as "rustic" as some places. Not a lot of tracts of wilderness due to many roads/highways that basically all follow the coastline or lead to it. Short shallow rivers, thousands of small lakes with mix of hardwood & boreal forest types. Low elevation - highest point is about 1800 ft.
Critters include small moose population, whitetails, black bear, eastern coyote, red fox, beaver, otter, mink, muskrat, bobcat, a few lynx in northern part of province, red squirrel, flying squirrel, striped skunk, short tail weasel, snowshoe hare, fisher, some pine marten, groundhog, lots of migratory & non-migratory birds.
