What is Tal­lu­rup­tiup Imanga? In the fu­ture, it will be Canada’s largest marine con­ser­va­tion area, lo­cated off­shore Nunavut. Work­ing to­gether has sus­tained peo­ple of the North for gen­er­a­tions. The des­ig­na­tion of this di­verse marine area is a tes­ta­ment to that spirit of col­lab­o­ra­tion. To­day we con­grat­u­late the Qik­iq­tani Inuit As­so­ci­a­tion, the Gov­ern­ments of Canada and Nunavut, and all or­ga­ni­za­tions that con­trib­uted to the re­cently an­nounced fi­nal bound­ary agree­ment for the area. Shell’s con­tri­bu­tion of 860,000 hectares of off­shore rights to the Na­ture Con­ser­vancy of Canada last year helped en­able con­ser­va­tion of this wider marine pro­tected area.
