Lake Saint Pierre, Canada
Lake Saint Pierre in Quebec, Canada, is pictured in this Flock-1 image, acquired on 14 April 2016.
The lake is located on the Saint Lawrence River, one mouth of which can be seen in this image. The river flows from Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes of North America, in a northeast direction through Quebec and Ontario where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean at the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.
The cities of Trois-Rivières and Sorel-Tracy sit at either end of the lake, where it rejoins the Saint Lawrence River, and part of Trois-Rivières is visible on the mouth of the river here.
Lake Saint Pierre is also a Ramsar site, recognised biosphere reserve and wildlife and bird sanctuary, which is an important area for migrating birds.
