Wildlife

Québec is rich in a variety of habitats that are home to nearly 800 wildlife species. Whether wild, sometimes intrusive, or threatened or vulnerable, our government ensures their conservation and protection, notably through knowledge acquisition and law enforcement.

Hunting, fishing and trapping are important activities for the economy of Québec’s regions. These activities are supported by 303,700 hunters, 652,900 fishers and 7,500 trappers.

To maintain a balance between humans, wildlife and their habitats, wildlife protection officers are responsible for enforcing the laws and regulations that govern wildlife. Their motto: protect, educate and prevent.
