On the Baffin Bay just off the larger Baffin Island, uninhabited Bylot Island is part of Sirmilik National Park and the Bylot Island Migratory Bird Sanctuary, home to snow geese, the rare Black-legged Kittiwakes, Thick-billed Murres and more than 50 other bird species. Beluga whales and Narwhales are seen off the coast while on shore you have a chance of seeing a polar bear. Though not permanently inhabited, Inuits from the region travel here to hunt and fish and have done for the last 4,000 years.
