Whether you're a hunter, a fisherman, a wildlife photographer, or an outdoor enthusiast, you will undoubtedly fall under the spell of Anticosti Island.The tranquility of this island's natural environment, as well as its abundant and diverse wildlife, breathtaking scenery, and captivating history, have earned Anticosti Island a world class reputation. Recently, Anticosti, a Quebec Government owned island, has become the center of a contentious debate over oil and gas exploration. Fracking will certainly affect the water quality of many of its pristine salmon rivers, including the famous Jupiter River.
As a retired hunting and salmon fishing guide on Anticosti Island, as well as an avid outdoor photographer, I am afraid that the natural beauty of the island will be sacrified as a consequence of the oil business. As far back as anyone can remember, people have been trying to make a buck off of Anticosti Island but have failed. This isolated outdoor paradise should stay as it is; a natural treasure for nature lovers and the next generation. Anticosti is a wild and enchanting island worth preserving!
