Roddickton is known as the "Moose Capital of the World" with a moose population of six animals per square kilometer. The two towns of Roddickton & Bide Arm amalgamated in 2009. It is not uncommon to see moose on lawns, in back yards, or along the streets at any time of day or night. In addition to the moose, this area is also home to a healthy population of caribou and black bears. The Town of Roddickton-Bide Arm maintains the Green Moose Interpretation Centre, which provides a look at the natural heritage and resources in the region. The centre provides a focal point for tourist attractions on the Canada Bay side of the Great Northern Peninsula; it highlights the area's unique culture, natural heritage and wildlife in the region.
The motto "Safe Haven of the North" derived from the Winter Tilting days of the late 1800's and early to mid 1900's when residents of surrounding communities moved to Bide Arm to work during the winter months and also to escape the bitter cold of Newfoundland winters on the Great Northern Peninsula. Many of them referred to Bides Arm (as the old folk say) as their Safe Haven. This motto has proven true even today. When winds are high during summer months boat owners from surrounding communities have docked their vessels in Bide Arm's sheltered harbour where it is safe from potential damage. The recently amalgamated communities are now known as the Town of Roddickton/Bide Arm.
