Meagre Bay Pond Animal Sanctuary

The small protected area of Meagre Bay Pond is home to a large number of waterfowl that use the shallow salt water to hunt and wade, especially waterfowl like ducks.

Visitors to the area will have no problem finding their way around the few trails in the area. While the sanctuary is for all animals, you will see mainly birds, as they enjoy both the lagoon and the forest that surrounds it.
