LANCASTER SOUND - National Marine Conservation Area


Now is the time to protect Tallurutiup Tariunga (English: Lancaster Sound). It’s an integral Arctic home for Inuit and wildlife.

This proposed National Marine Conservation Area is larger than Denmark and home to 2800+ people.

It’s also home to more than 75% of the word’s narwhal, and has the second-most dense polar bear population in the world.

Millions of migratory birds return in the summer to raise their young.

Lancaster Sound is becoming increasingly busy as shipping levels rise, and the threat of oil and gas exploration looms.
