Canada 13: The Gaspe

Canada  13: The Gaspe

Visiting the Gaspé region of Quebec is a truly unique experience, and this panoramic program brings it all to life. Discovered by French explorer Jacques Cartier in 1534, the Gaspe Peninsula is a natural wonder. Roché Percé, the "pierced rock," is a natural monument and bird sanctuary, which is losing 375 tons of its mass every year. Bonaventure Island, declared a bird sanctuary in 1919, is an 1800-acre island, home to the second largest gannet colony in the world. Miguasha National Park is a paleontologist's dream. With an amazing assortment of fossils dating back 350-400 million, it is considered the most outstanding fossil site in the world. The Reford Gardens are one of Quebec's most popular National Historic sites. Renowned as an outstanding example of horticultural art, these gardens are designed in the style of 19th-century collectors' gardens. Lastly, we learn how sailors in the 16th century discovered the abundant fishing grounds of the Gulf of the St. Lawrence how important fishing remains as part of daily life today. 03/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
