Point Pelee is an important migratory stop-over for neo-tropical migrants, both in the autumn and fall. As well, its Carolinian Forest provides breeding habitat for species that are rarely found elsewhere in Canada.

Point Pelee National Park is renowned as the best location in inland North America to observe the northward migration of songbirds.

Every autumn, Point Pelee National Park and vicinity is visited by enormous numbers of migrant birds.

Monarch butterflies are one of the most recognizable species in Canada. While they have been spotted on almost every continent in the world and colonies have established in some tropical climates, the migratory population of North America is a unique natural phenomena.
