Prince Edward Island’s West Point Lighthouse is an icon. But now that icon is in danger of being claimed by the very element it guards against.
Water has eroded the dunes near the lighthouse so badly that there are concerns the building might collapse into the ocean.
Crumbling coastlines are hardly a problem unique to PEI. Bigger storms are eroding Canadian shorelines, particularly throughout the North and the Atlantic region.
