L’Île aux Perroquets

When the Canada C3 team stopped in La Minganie, we visited the historical Île aux Perroquets. This island is one of many that make up the Mingan Archipelago, and is located 12 meters above the sea level. Visitors can admire an impressive lighthouse, a quaint inn, and dozens of species of birds as the waves of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence crash onto the rocky cliffs. We spoke to Jean-Marc Colin, who works for Parks Canada, and whose father was the lighthouse keeper on Île des Perroquets.
