Nestled into Ungava Bay, which separates Nunavik from Baffin Island, Akpatok is an inhabited island whose cliffs soar to more than 200 m in height and stand proud against the opaque, milky waters of the bay. The location is startlingly impressive, animated by the swoops and cries of the thousands of migratory Arctic birds. It’s also one of the walrus’s favourite haunts and a traditional hunting ground for local Inuit.
Here is an excerpt from a naturalist guide, in summer 2011: "At the base of the cliff which forms a natural border for Akpatok, the first bear appeared, like an actor coming onto a stage and, in the most theatrical manner, he struck a pose for the zoom lenses of the watching cameras. A more modest female and her cub strolled across the landscape... nearby, the prehistoric-looking musk appear on their dainty legs and at the cliff tops, hundreds of thousands of guillemots provide an unexpected ‘fireworks’ display, fizzing about the skies and calling wildly."
