    Default Canada makes giant leaps in site protection

    The Canadian Government has announced that it will protect more than 450,000 hectares of Arctic wilderness in Nunavut province, including a globally significant Important Bird Area, by establishing three new National Wildlife Areas: Niginganiq (Isabella Bay), Qaqulluit (Cape Searle) and Akpait (Reid Bay). All three sites are located on the north-east side of Baffin Island in Nunavut.

    A nice example to set against the abysmal record across the Davis Strait in Greenland. Let's hope the Greenland govt. takes note.
