Lancaster Sound, an area of great diversity:
Some 20 000-50 000 harp seals spend the summer in these waters. This region also has one of the highest densities of polar bears in the Canadian Arctic. About one-third of Eastern Canada's colonial seabirds breed and feed in Lancaster Sound, including more than 700 000 pairs of thick-billed murres, black-legged kittiwakes and northern fulmars.
