High Arctic

Although Canada’s high arctic is a polar desert, drier than the Sahara, it teems with life. In some areas the ocean remains ice-free year-round. These areas, known as polynyas, support massive seabird colonies. In other places, a warmer micro climate supports lush vegetation, creating arctic oases, such as Truelove Lowland on Devon Island.
