Sirmilik means "place of glaciers" in the Inuit language, which aptly describes the expansive landscape of glaciers, valleys and ice fields found on Bylot Island. The island, located off the northwest end of Baffin Island, has been a protected area and migratory bird reserve since 2001 because it is one of the most diverse areas in the arctic. Narwhals, beluga whales, walrus and seals can be found in the waters, while on land there are caribou, arctic fox, arctic hares, wolves and even an occasional polar bear. View more
