Brant Geese Closes Beach to Dogs

During MARCH and APRIL guests traveling with pets must note:

In the spring, Parksville/Qualicum beaches become the sole stopping ground in the long migration journey of Brant Geese. This species of goose is particularly susceptible to human and pet related disturbances, so conservation efforts are undertaken due to a declining number of wild geese remaining. As they need time to rest and regain their strength, specific beaches in the Parksville/Qualicum area are closed to pets throughout the months of March and April including the one with direct access from the resort.
