Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site
Together, the Government of Canada and the Council of the Haida Nation manage the special place called Gwaii Haanas, meaning “Islands of Beauty” in the Haida language. Gwaii Haanas embodies the essence of the rugged beauty and rich ecology of the Pacific coast. Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site encompasses 1,470 square kilometres. Haida Gwaii is often called the ‘Canadian Galapagos’ because of the number of endemic species that have evolved here, distinct from their mainland relatives. The archipelago is also influenced by introduced species which are changing the vegetative and animal profile of the islands.
