This group of rugged islands is one of the places where woodland
caribou still roam. The islands are also home to beaver, hare, fox
and various shorebirds.
Remnants of two native settlements, as well as a former timber
operation, are located here. The islands are covered with a southern
boreal forest with some arctic-alpine flora. For the most part,
the rock is early Precambrian of volcanic and sedimentary origin.
There has been speculation that the central islands are the remains
of an ancient meteorite.
