One of Canada's newest National Parks, Qausuittuq's rolling tundra is home to the endangered Peary Caribou. The parks name, pronounced: Kow-soo-ee-took means, “place where the sun doesn't rise” in Inuktitut, in reference to the fact that the sun stays below the horizon for several months in the winter at this latitude. Found north of the Northwest Passage on Bathurst Island, we are still exploring this park ourselves!
