Bathurst Island is one of the Parry Islands in the Nunavut territory of northern Canada, between the islands of Cornwallis and Melville and north of Parry Channel. It is 160 miles (260 km) long and 50-100 miles (80-160 km) wide and its northern coastline is deeply indented by the Erskine and May inlets. Rich in birdlife and Arctic flora, the Polar Bear Pass National Wildlife Area extends through the centre of the island and has been the site of a wildlife research station since 1968. Bathurst Island was the site of Thule native tribes around 1000 AD, presumably when the climate was warmer. Discovered in 1819 by the British explorer Sir William Parry, the island was named after the 3rd Earl Bathurst.
