Défense de nos aires protégées

Defending our Protected Areas

Our most well-known protected areas are, without a doubt, our national parks. Who has not heard of the Parc national de la Gaspésie or the Parc national Mont-Orford, under the jurisdiction of the government of Québec, or the federal National Parks such as Forillon National Park, La Mauricie National Park or the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve?

Projets marins
