Compensation project in Saint-Ignace-de-Loyola: positive, permanent impacts for wildlife

The construction of three temporary jetties in the St. Lawrence to deconstruct the Champlain Bridge has of course interfered with the natural fish habitat in the river.

 

This is why JCCBI is implementing a compensation project in collaboration with Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) to develop a piece of agricultural land along the St. Lawrence River in the Saint-Pierre Lake archipelago. 

 

This work mainly aims to:

  • develop areas to allow fish to spawn
  • create new habitats that will support plant and animal diversity
  • help protect biodiversity in this region

 

Vegetation planting

 

For this project, nearly 30,000 plants (various types of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants) will be planted near the water and around the islands this fall. This will provide good cover for birds and create substrates that are suitable for fish.
