Estuary Islands National Wildlife Area: CW66-510/2017E-PDF

"Estuary Islands National Wildlife Area (NWA) was created in 1986 to protect key nesting sites for migratory birds, particularly colonial seabirds such as the Common Eider. The NWA’s 404 hectares comprise a dozen or so islands or parts of islands scattered over some 120 kilometres between Kamouraska and Rimouski (Le Bic) in the St. Lawrence Estuary. These rocky islands are covered with herbaceous vegetation and forests dominated by fir and spruce."
