Active since 1993, the Tadoussac Bird Observatory acts as a spearhead in monitoring boreal and arctic birds through numerous projects carried out in several strategic sites along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. Our research projects span from spring to autumn at the Dunes de Tadoussac, Les Bergeronnes, and the Cap-Tourmente National Wildlife Reserve. These sites are globally renowned for the number of birds that can be observed during migration, as well as for their landscapes. In addition to our research efforts, raising awareness is also at the core of our concerns. We offer various interpretive scenarios, host over a hundred interns and volunteers each year, provide ornithological camps, and organize the Festival.

Finally, the Tadoussac Bird Observatory relies on the support of thousands of people worldwide and can count on over a hundred volunteers annually, without whom we could not function. Thank you!
