Point de l'Est National Wildlife Area: management plan

Pointe de I’Est National Wildlife Area (NWA) is in Quebec. The 724 hectare NWA covers an expanse of dunes, barrens and ponds. It protects important habitats serving as staging areas for migratory birds, especially shorebirds, and as breeding grounds for species at risk like the Piping Plover and the Horned Grebe.

This management plan provides detailed information about Pointe de I’Est NWA, including:

  • a description of the area
  • its ecological resources
  • the challenges and threats it faces
  • habitat and wildlife management

All NWAs are protected and managed under the Canada Wildlife Act. This management plan pairs with protection provided for existing Aboriginal or treaty rights.
