Queen Charlotte Islands

WWF Abstract

For migratory birds such as wandering tattlers, the Queen Charlotte Islands are a true oasis. This archipelago of more than 150 islands, known for its natural beauty, is the perfect resting place for waterbirds flying north to Alaska and south to Mexico. It is also a prime nesting area for bald eagles, tufted puffins, auklets, and thousands of other seabirds, which find abundant fish and other animals there to feed on. Inland, the lush, old-growth forests provide nesting sites for sharp-shinned hawks, and other raptors. Peregrine falcons nest on cliffs along the shore.
