The Kofman Moose Bay Reserve is a large and centrally located property south of O’Donnell Point in the Wah Wah Taysee community. This property is in a remote and undisturbed section of Georgian Bay.
This factor coupled with ideal rock barren and large coastal marshes makes it a haven for reptile species; in fact five reptile species at risk were identified on Kofman during the baseline visit in June 2015: Massasauga rattlesnake (Sistrurus catenatus), Eastern ribbonsnake (Thamnophis sauritis), Northern map turtle (Graptemys geographica), Eastern milksnake (Lampropeltis triangulum) and Snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina).
The Kofman Reserve was selected by the federal ministry of the Environment and Climate Change in 2016 as one of four signature protected properties to be showcased and celebrated due to its wonderful diversity.
