Beluga summer at Baie Sainte-Marguerite: an unique protection measure in Canada

Birth and rearing places for young belugas such as Baie Sainte-Marguerite are very precious indeed. Therefore, from June 21 to September 21, watercraft are barred from the prohibited area indicated in red, which follows a line between Cap Nord-Ouest and Cap Sainte-Marguerite. Special authorization is granted only to recreational kayaks, canoes, and anglers who are required to travel nonstop along a bank-side corridor within 10 m of the shallow areas of the bay. Thank you for helping to protect this endangered population.
