Gwaii Haanas

.

Gwaii Haanas is part of the Tentative list of Canada in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List. It is a proposed extension of SGang Gwaay WHS.

The Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site are located on Queen Charlotte Islands, an archipelago 80 km off the northwest coast of mainland British Columbia, and includes highly diverse living intertidal and subtidal marine communities. It is also strategically located along the Pacific flyway, hosting huge seabird breeding colonies as well as being an important migrant stopover. Two other remarkable former Haida villages, Tanu and Skedans, are located within the park reserve, alongside the SGaang Gwaii World Heritage Site.
