Ninginganiq National Wildlife Area: CW66-379/2017E-PDF
"Ninginganiq National Wildlife Area (NWA) was designated in 2010 and is the largest NWA in Canada, measuring over 3360 square kilometres. Located on the northeast coast of Baffin Island, Nunavut, the NWA includes the shoreline and islands of Isabella Bay and adjacent ocean out to 12 nautical miles from shore. The Inuktitut word “Ninginganiq” translates roughly as “the place where fog sits.” The NWA provides important marine habitat for Bowhead Whales and other marine mammals, as well as seabirds."
