Québecers are looking for ways to preserve and promote a deeper understanding of their vast natural heritage. Over the years, park administrations have developed a keen interest in the interpretation of the region’s rich flora and fauna, placing special emphasis on educating visitors who come to explore these privileged areas and raising their awareness of the sanctity of these natural habitats. UNESCO-designated biosphere reserves testify to this commitment to the environment: Mont-Saint Hilaire, Charlevoix, Lac-Saint-Pierre and Manicouagan-Uapishka and national wildlife areas.
