This magnificent park, nestled between cliffs, forests and the sea, is at the end of the Gaspé Peninsula.
Minke whale, a small giant
The smallest of the St. Lawrence’s whales, the minke is still respectable as far as giants go: as long as a limousine and as wide as two elephants.
A formidable hunter, it uses cliffs, currents and even boat hulls to catch small fish, which it swallows whole.
In the St. Lawrence, about 90% of the minke whales observed are females.
