The Nunatsiavut Government is recommending that Beneficiaries of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement residing with the Labrador Inuit Settlement Area (Nain, Hopedale, Postville, Makkovik and Rigolet) refrain from harvesting migratory birds after May 30, 2024.

Based on previous discussions with experienced hunters in our communities, the Nunatsiavut Government is recommending that the spring harvest be kept to a minimum.

Hunters should exercise good conservation practices and not exceed four (4) Canada Geese and eight (8) freshwater ducks and divers per household.

**Please keep in mind that this is the mating season of migratory birds and birds should be harvested accordingly**

Harvesting of Harlequin Duck (Lords and Ladies) is prohibited.

If you require additional information, please contact your local Nunatsiavut Government Conservation Officer or Wildlife Manager Jason Dicker at [email protected], or 709-922-2942 ext. 249.

Conservation Officers will be monitoring the harvest of migratory birds.
