The area affected by the parc national de la
Baie-aux-Feuilles project includes the largest estuary in Ungava Bay, where
th highest tides in the world occur, reaching up to 17 metres in height.
The park’s creation would make it possible to ensure the protection of a
good part of the drainage basin of Aux Feuilles Bay.
Located near the nordic village of Tasiujaq, the site is
renowned for its wealth of animal and plant species that are in a precarious
situation in Québec. Among them, the peregrine falcon nests on the cliffs
and islands of the bay. One also notes the presence of musk oxen.
