A total of 74 species of Arctic birds thrive on this island. In fact, it is such an important nesting area that the entire island has been incorporated into the Sirmilik National Park, and the eastern part of the island is federally designated as the Bylot Island Migratory Bird Sanctuary. It is also a major nesting site for birds, including Thick-billed Murres, Black-legged Kittiwakes and Greater Snow Geese.
