Labrador Current (88) More files... by Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott
The rugged shores of Canada's eastern most province have changed little since the arrival of the first Europeans hundreds of year ago. Deep fjords with abrupt, barren walls alternate with the coastal islands to provide a captivating landscape may soon be a protected as a national marine sanctuary.The Labrador Current cools the waters off of Eastern Newfoundland as it travels from the north to meet the Gulf Stream trailing impressive icebergs in its path. Come summer, when the current warms, a steady supply of plankton, krill and fish move into the area attracting large colonies of breeding seabirds. For twelve months of the year, Newfoundland/Labrador host the hemisphere's largest gatherings of seabirds. Every year some 35-40 million travel to take advantage of the rich waters and the safety of the remote islands. During the autumn, millions of northern birds flee the Arctic Winters of Greenland and the Northwest Territories for ice-free feeding grounds along the coast. As the ice from the Arctic travels south and portions of the ocean freeze, thee marine birds feed on the abundant stocks of plankton and fish that are also attracted to this rich Arctic edge. As spring arrives, swarms of seabirds number in the hundreds of thousands. Over spring and summer, the gannets, murres, gulls and other seabirds carry on the serious business of mating and raising a family. During these months, seabird watching opportunities have been described by experts as the best in the world.
