Scientific Research

Major Research Orientations at Parc national d'Anticosti

Having extensive knowledge of the parks to better preserve them is the foundation that justifies the efforts invested in inventories, monitoring programs and scientific research.

At Parc national d'Anticosti, research efforts are oriented to monitoring terrestrial fauna (white-tailed deer population), avifauna (eagle nesting), amphibian fauna, and plant species likely to be designated as threatened or vulnerable (longleaf arnica, Anticosti aster). We also conduct some in-house monitoring on some species, like the capelin spawning grounds. Other research is also being done on a variety of geological and geomorphological phenomena.

Did you know?

The Bald Eagle, A Majestic Bird

Anticosti Island is recognized as one of the places in Québec with the highest concentration of Bald Eagle nesting sites, so of course they are also found in Parc national d’Anticosti.

The park provides an ideal nesting habitat for this species. Very sensitive to changes in its environment, the Bald Eagle looks for a quiet place to build its nest.

To gain knowledge on the evolution of the Bald Eagle population in the park, an annual survey is conducted to find out if the nests are used and if they contain Bald Eagle hatchlings.

he data collected helps us evaluate the reproductive success of the Bald Eagle population.
