Known as a premiere destination for whale watching and ecotourism at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, this 1000 square-kilometer Important Bird Area also plays host to exceptional seasonal migrations of raptors, waterbirds and landbirds. The isolated archipelago and its rich surrounding waters are also home to at-risk North Atlantic Right Whales, Fin Whales, endangered Eastern Mountain Avens flowers, Peregrine Falcons, and some of the continent’s most important inshore waters for migratory Red Phalaropes. A small Nature Preserve on Brier Island is presently the only portion of the area that is protected.
