Hope Spot - Scott Islands: protect this critical habitat for seabirds

About Hope Spot - Scott Islands: protect this critical habitat for seabirds
These five Canadian islands provide critical habitat for seabirds. More than 400,000 pairs of Cassin’s auklets nest on Triangle Island in the Scott Islands, comprising the world’s largest colony, while others nest around the Queen Charlotte Strait. Triangle Island is also home to some 40,000 pairs of rhinoceros auklets and 26,000 pairs of tufted puffins. Other nesting seabird species in this priority conservation area (PCA) include the common murre, thick-billed murre, pelagic cormorant, glaucous-winged gull, and various species of storm petrels. The threatened marbled murrelet occurs in these protected waters, feeding on forage fish. Steller’s sea lions and harbor seals are regularly sighted. Sea otters, once locally extirpated, are still rare visitors to this area, despite their reintroduction on Vancouver Island. Blue, humpback, killer (both transient and resident), gray and minke whales also frequent these waters.
