Schedule B

Outline of Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve Management Plan

The Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve is established for the purpose of protecting a spectacular seabird breeding site. The reserve provides habitat for a diversity of breeding seabirds which includes the fourth largest concentration of Northern Gannets in North America . It is an internationally significant seabird colony.

Management policies have been devised for the reserve to protect its significant ecological features. These include no new development such as roads, cottages and wharves. Resource development will not be permitted. Natural succession will be allowed to continue with no habitat modifications to occur. Scientific research and educational use in the reserve will be encouraged.

The administration of the management plan is the responsibility of Parks and Natural Areas Division, Department of Tourism, Culture and Recreation.
