Situated on the northeastern tip of the Cumberland Peninsula of Baffin Island in Nunavut, the 792-km2 NWA protects key marine habitat for colonial seabirds and marine mammals. The smaller, terrestrial portion (48 km2) is located on a promontory overlooking Akpait Fiord, and consists of rock pinnacles, ridges and steep cliffs rising 915 metres above sea level, bordered by a high talus slope and beach."
