"Bylot Island, 11 067 km2, is nestled into the northeastern corner of BAFFIN ISLAND at the entrance to LANCASTER SOUND. Its southern aspect looks across Pond Inlet and Eclipse Sound; on the west it is divided from Baffin Island by the narrow Navy Board Inlet. Bold, rugged coasts, glaciers and a high, mountainous interior have not been conducive to habitation. Its steep, rugged coastline (particularly capes Hay and Graham Moore) and a polynya centred on the entrance of LANCASTER SOUND offer prime habitat for seabirds. Its importance for seabirds was recognized in 1965 when the island and surrounding waters were designated as a migratory BIRD SANCTUARY. In 1999 Bylot Island became part of SIRMILIK NATIONAL PARK."

You are a member of the National Parks group. This photo would be a great addition to the group, and would be the only photo from Sirmilik National Park in the group.
