Coburg Island and the surrounding waters were proclaimed a National Wildlife Area in 1995. Located off of the southeastern tip of Ellesmere Island, it comprises one of the most important seabird nesting areas in the Canadian Arctic. Up to 385,000 thick-billed murres, black-legged kittiwakes, northern fulmars, and black guillemots nest on the precipitous cliffs on the south coast of Coburg Island, and on Princess Charlotte Monument, a small islet near the Coburg Island colony. The close proximity of Coburg Island to year-round openings in the sea ice in Baffin Bay and Lady Ann Strait provides abundant food for the birds and attractive habitat for polar bears, ringed and bearded seals, walrus, and migrating narwhal and beluga.
