Hope Spot - Northwest Passage: the largest narwhal congregation on Earth

About Hope Spot - Northwest Passage: the largest narwhal congregation on Earth
This area is home to the largest narwhal congregation on Earth, one seventh of the world’s beluga population, bowhead whales, walrus, seals and more. Protection would ensure the survival of a vast majority of Arctic wildlife, including several million migratory birds of numerous species that congregate in the area at unprecedented levels. Arctic cod are the mainstay to most of the Arctic wildlife in this region; schools in the region have been known to weigh in at nearly 30 tons. The nearly two thousand beluga whales that congregate in Cunningham Inlet are part of the Baffin Bay herd, and make up for one of the largest remaining congregations of Beluga whales on Earth. Due to the harsh climate of the Arctic and the presence of year-round sea ice, the Northwest Passage’s ecosystem is more vulnerable than other bio-networks. In addition, unlike most of the modern world, local residents depend on the area’s living marine resources for food and cash income. As a result, the Arctic may be unable to support activities such as year-round shipping that are sustainable in more temperate regions. Protection plans are advancing with Canada working to protect marine life at the eastern gate to the Northwest Passage.
