Situated in the western part of Jameson Land, this site comprises flat tundra (mainly dwarf-shrub heath and grassland) and areas of bare ground interspersed with many rivers, lakes and ponds. The primary habitats for geese are areas of marsh and wet grassland adjacent to lakes and streams, and coastal saltmarshes.
This is a very important moulting area for two species of goose.
