Birding In Norfolk County
The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve, designated by UNESCO, is one of the most important waterfowl staging areas in North America, while the non-coastal portions of Norfolk County also provide important foraging and migratory stopover sites for ducks, geese and swans. Long Point is also home of the national headquarters of Birds Studies Canada.
The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation promotes research, monitoring, community outreach and education, partnerships, and projects that support the goals of biodiversity, conservation and sustainable communities in the Long Point World Biosphere Reserve. We exchange information and work collaboratively with the Canadian Biosphere Reserves Association, as well as other biosphere reserves in Canada and around the world. Our UNESCO/ MAB Biosphere Reserve designation does not bring with it any new authorities over lands, water or resources.
