Captivating, ancient and diverse, Nunavut's vast arctic tundra is home
to an extraordinary people and variety of wildlife. The Inuit have a
connection to the land and its rich history is woven into a culture
steeped in tradition and folklore. Nunavut is a world where the darkness
of winter is tempered only by silver threads of moonlight and the vibrant
glow of the Northern Lights. Polar bears roam the ice floes stalking
prey, and muskoxen thunder across the tundra, whales play and narwhals
joust in ice-blue waters and Atlantic walruses can be seen basking on
the rocky Arctic shoreline.
is a veritable birdwatchers' paradise. Phlaropes, peregrine falcons,
gyrfalcons, snowy owls, ivory gulls, sandhill cranes, Arctic loons,
jaegers, golden eagles, and terns are only a few of the species that
make Nunavut their summer home. Mid-May to August is an excellent birding
period, when migrant species return to nest on the Nunavut spring landscape.
General wildlife tours offer wonderful birding experiences. Down the
Thelon River, the Thelon Wildlife Sancturary is a wilderness trek where
tree-nesting gyrfalcons, short-eared owls, snowy owls, rough legged
hawks, golden eagles and many other species make their summer home there.
A traveller visiting in Nunavut will receive the warm welcome that has
always been a part of the Inuit tradition.
Nunavut's natural beauty and wildlife abundance is region wide.
