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.
