Newfoundland is quite a wild place to explore. South of St Johns is a Bird Sanctuary called Cape St Marys where 10,000 Gannets come to breed every single year. The absolutely incredible thing about them is that they are monogamous, they mate for life, however, these birds only stay with each other to raise their young and then as one could fly to Mexico the other could fly to Africa. Year after year, the breeding pair make their way back to each other to raise another young.
