|Recognized above all for its exceptionally rich wildlife, Matane Wildlife Reserve offers visitors a stunning panorama of mountains and deep valleys furrowed by majestic rivers. It was established in 1962 when the government purchased part of the current territory from a forestry company. With its sweeping landscapes, the reserve is a favorite with nature photographers and admirers of picturesque natural settings.|
Moose, Québec's "kings of the forest", are abundant throughout the reserve. In fact, the moose population is the densest per square kilometer in all Québec. In certain sectors, observation towers have been set up for visitors to observe this large mammal. Matane Wildlife Reserve is also home to a wide variety of other animal and bird species, and is becoming increasingly popular with hunters, fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts from inside and outside the province. Matane Wildlife Reserve is a natural treasure patiently waiting to be discovered. Don't miss out on your trip to the land of the moose!
