Authentic. Original. Inimitable. Mary Majka was one of Canada's great pioneering environmentalists. She was best known as a television host, a conservationist, and a driving force behind the internationally acclaimed Marys Point Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve on the Bay of Fundy.

Sanctuary gives full expression to the intensely personal story of Mary's life. A daughter of privilege, a survivor of World War II Poland, an architect of dreams, Mary Majka became a passionate environmentalist intent on protecting fragile spaces and species for generations to come.

In this amazing story of determination and foresight, Deborah Carr reveals a complex, indomitable, thoroughly human being — flawed yet feisty, inspiring and inspired.

Deborah Carr''s articles have appeared in Saltscapes, Progress, Nature Canada, Wildlife Canada, and Homemakers Magazine. As a child, she watched Mary Majka''s television show, Have You Seen. Her first home as a married woman was on Caledonia Mountain, where she encountered the formidable Mary Majka more than twenty years ago.
