Welcome to Esquimalt Lagoon Wildlife

Beach Scene Here you can learn of ongoing efforts of volunteers to protect the local and migrant bird populations and their habitat from encroaching development and humans.

During the past 5 years while visiting the Esquimalt Lagoon daily we have observed recurring symptoms in ducks, geese and swans. We have monitored these sick birds over the months and see them become gradually weaker as their symptoms worsen. Usually, by 4 to 6 months the birds disappear or occasionally we have found their body.

We are deeply concerned about the health of the lagoon water birds and indeed, the future of the lagoon as a Migratory Bird Sanctuary.
