Eastern Newfoundland's Terra Nova National Park protects the 'fingers of the sea'. In this unusual landscape, the ocean's bays reach deep inland to meet the edge of the boreal forest. The 'fingers' of Terra Nova are sheltered and shallow, and whales, seabirds and other marine life thrives here. Most of the park is forest, which supports a large population of moose and a small number of the endangered Newfoundland marten. The moist climate of the park produces the right conditions for the growth of bogs, which sometimes rise up to 5 metres above the surrounding landscape.
