The Keepers of Darnley Bay

“The land was there before we came, the land will be there after we’re gone. If you’ve got no land, you’ve got nothing.”

A day in the life in Canada’s newest Marine Protected Area.

The Anguniaqvia Niqiqyuam Marine Protected Area was created in collaboration with the Inuvialuit, as well as partners from industry, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders. The designation of this new Marine Protected Area marks an important step in Canada’s commitment to reaching its conservation targets of protecting 5% of marine and coastal areas by 2017. Hear from the people of Paulatuk and learn what an MPA means to them in our latest film, The Keepers of Darnley Bay.
