Saguenay–St.Lawrence Marine Park

Take Action!

In 1998, the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park was established thanks in a joint effort by Parks Canada and Parcs Québec to protect the St. Lawrence Beluga, an endangered species.

It is now time for you to take action your area. To help you, answer the following question: “After my discoveries during this expedition, what concrete actions could I take to protect the water in my area?”

And now for your last mission...
