Nirjutiqarvik National Wildlife Area: CW66-370/2017E-PDF

"Nirjutiqarvik National Wildlife Area (NWA) was established in 1995 to protect local seabird colonies and marine mammal populations. Located off the southern tip of Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, the NWA covers more than 1783 square kilometres and includes Coburg Island, Princess Charlotte Monument and the surrounding waters within a 10-kilometre radius. Most of the island is covered in glaciers and ice fields, and the rest is rugged, mountainous terrain with peaks rising over 800 metres above sea level."
