Stopover sites are critical to survival. They provide space, food and protection from predators to aid in the recuperation from long flights and the restoration of fat and energy for the next stage of the journey.
As the second largest saline water body in Canada, encompassing more than 6,000 hectares (15,000 acres), Chaplin Lake has ample shoreline. More than 30 species of shorebirds - some of them endangered - either stop to rest and refuel or nest and raise their young.
