Canada: boundary of the Lancaster Sound NMCA agreed

The Government of Canada, the Government of Nunavut and the Qikiqtani Inuit Association announced an agreement on the final boundary for a future national marine conservation area (NMCA) in Tallurutiup Imanga / Lancaster Sound. A section of this area twice the size of Nova Scotia will be protected, making it the largest marine conservation area in Canada. This conservation area will protect Inuit harvesting rights guaranteed under the Nunavut agreement and ensure the protection of species at risk. More information may be found here.
