The richness and variety of wildlife in Nunavik is in a class
by itself. This is especially true in the Leaf River valley,
which marks the boundary between the northern boreal forest and the Arctic
tundra. For example, both the black bear and the polar bear are found
there. The lynx, the marten, the porcupine and the beaver are
at the northern limit of their range, while the arctic fox, the arctic
wolf, the musk ox, the ptarmigan and the barren-ground caribou are
there as well.
This richness of the Nunavik wildlife offers unparalled opportunities
for photography as well as hunting.
