Point Frederick Designated Migratory Bird Sanctuary

(Ce qui suit est fourni en anglais uniquement en raison de contraintes de temps.)

Ex-Cadets and current Cadets alike can attest to the sheer number of birds which make their home on RMC’s peninsula throughout the year. As eVeritas has just learned this morning from a source within DND, that population won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

“Geographically speaking, RMC sits on the migration route for a number of important bird species,” the source (who spoke on condition of anonymity) explained. “For that reason, the Canadian Wildlife Service has requested, and DND has just approved, the designation of Point Frederick as a bird sanctuary.”

The new designation will be in place effective May 1. With grad week just around the corner, we were curious as to what this will mean for activities on the College grounds. “Full details will be available by the end of the week,” our source said. “What I can tell you is to expect Canadian Wildlife Service staff on the grounds to monitor the bird populations and enforce restrictions with regards to noise levels, etc.”

Our source also explained that, as a nod to the history of the Canadian Military Colleges, Royal Roads University has agreed to provide a shipment of peacocks which will add to the diversity of the bird population and, it is hoped, provide an additional attraction for tourists. The peacocks are expected to arrive by mid-summer.

We will provide more information as it becomes available.
