Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve

In the southwest corner of the Avalon Peninsula, the Cap St. Mary's Ecological Reserve is home to over 24,000 nesting gannets. A 1km trail allows us to approach and observe the bird colony less than 10 meters away.

Established in 1983, the ecological reserve is also home to other nesting seabirds such as the black-legged kittiwake, common murrethick-billed murres, guillemots, razorbills, fulmars, the great cormorant and the double-crested cormorant to name just a few.
