Parc marin du Saguenay–Saint-Laurent is the only park in Québec to preserve and enhance an exclusively marine environment. Associating the strength of two parks networks, Parcs Québec and Parks Canada, its mandate is to raise the level of protection of these unique ecosystems and the quality of experiences that visitors can have here. A unique and fabulous spot, where the majestic waters of the biggest estuary in the world joins those of the longest fjord in Eastern Canada, the marine park is overflowing with natural riches and biological diversity. This is one of the rare places in the world where you stand on the coast to observe a giant marine mammal, the blue whale. There are several ways to experience the marine park. Sailing on the waters or treading the soil of the Discovery Network sites, you’ll be amazed by the beauty of the nature here, and by the wide variety of activities that are offered.
After 10 years of field research, we are proud to present the first report on the evolution of the ecological integrity for Quebec’s National Parks. Access the entire findings (in French only) of more than 370 surveys carried out through the ecological integrity tracking program.
