The Gannets of St. Lawrence

By Linda Tancs

St. Lawrence River is one of the world’s longest rivers, dissecting Québec at its southern latitudes.  Along the river are many island pearls, not the least of which is Île Bonaventure.  Located at the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, the island hosts the largest colony of northern gannets in North America.  A haven for ecotourists, the island’s national park (one of 27 in Québec) features a five-million-ton monolith shaped by nature’s fury that is accessible at low tide.
