The Town of Carmanville, with a population of 737, is located on the northeastern coast of Newfoundland in North west arm in Rocky Bay, Hamilton Sound. Carmanville has a very rich history with many attractions, bringing hundreds of visitors to the area each year. Visitors enjoy such things like sport cod fishing during the annual 'food fishery', coastal boat rides, whale watching, and the natural scenic beauty of Noggin' Cove Head, Middle Arm and Carmanville's Wetland Nature Walking Trail.
The conservation area has habitat of critical importance to waterfowl, generally providing prime habitat for nesting and brood rearing. These areas in Carmanville also represent areas of importance to town residents, as well as to visitors to the area. However, without these areas, a great number of bird populations, including waterfowl, songbirds, and other wildlife in the town would suffer.
