Scientists have weighed in on the controversy surrounding a proposed golf course in the Owls Head area of Little Harbour, N.S. They say the area is home to a rare ecosystem that has been untouched for about 10,000 years, adding eel grass beds there serve as an important carbon sink and provide shelter for small animals and a breeding ground for fish and lobster.
