Tuk­tut No­gait Na­tional Park

Canadian Wildlife - - BIGGER PICTURE -

Mean­ing “young cari­bou” in the Inu­vialuk­tun lan­guage—pic­ture a just-born calf with wob­bly legs and a drive to keep up — Tuk­tut No­gait pro­tects vi­tal calv­ing grounds of the Bluenosewest cari­bou herd. It’s re­mote — about 170 kilo­me­tres north of the Arc­tic Cir­cle — but if you can get here, it’ll be a once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence. The park’s rolling tun­dra is punc­tu­ated by deep gorges and pris­tine wa­ter­falls and fea­tures an­cient ar­ti­facts of In­dige­nous pres­ence through­out the cen­turies.
