Min­gan Ar­chi­pel­ago Na­tional Park Re­serve

Canadian Wildlife - - BIGGER PICTURE -

When it comes to eco­log­i­cal unique­ness, not much sur­passes Que­bec’s Min­gan Ar­chi­pel­ago — a nar­row strip of tiny is­lands and sur­round­ing reefs that hug the Gulf of St. Lawrence’s north shore. Shaped by the sea and the re­lent­less­ness of time, an­cient lime­stone mono­liths stand erect like an­cient sculp­tures guard­ing the shore­line. The park also fea­tures an abun­dance of land and marine or­gan­isms, from di­verse seabird colonies to reef-pa­trolling har­bour seals and hump­back whales.
