Hannah Bay Migratory Bird Sanctuary

Sanikiluaq, James Bay, Qikiqtaaluk

This Ramsar-designated sanctuary is located in southern James Bay. The closest Nunavut community is Sanikiluaq, the southernmost hamlet of the territory. Due to its flat relief, the Hannah Bay area has extensive tidal wetlands that provide critical staging and fledging areas for migratory waterfowl and shorebirds, including Atlantic brants, lesser snow geese and Canada geese.
