Project Description:
Our goal is to increase awareness, and educate Adventure Canada's clients, on the wildlife of the Canadian Arctic. We have achieved this by cautiously viewing in the field that is monitored and inerpreted by our experienced guides. The purpose for our stop is to provide educational travel for Adventure Canada clients. To provide clients with the opporunity to view wildlife in a manner that is respectful, educational and supervised by appropriate guides. Guides on-site will assist in the interpretation of the wildlife we encounter. Zodiac Cruise at Prince Leopold Island, Coburg Island & Isabella Bay Clients (max 198 & 35 staff) will be in Zodiacs with 10 people in each boat with an average of 18-20 Zodiacs in the water at one time, with a maximum of 20 in the water at one time. We are on average cruising for a max of 1 hour on Zodiacs at each stop. Zodiac cruising will be the main way of viewing wildlife. We may land at Tay Bay and Kaparoqtalik Glacier on Bylot Island and go on a hike. All passengers will be briefed by staff to leave sites as they were when we land and not to take anything or disturb habitat/wildlife. No structures will be erected at any of the sites. We are obtaining permits with Parks Canada (Karen Petkau) on our visit here. At all of these locations, we may launch our kayaks if the conditions are favourable. We will follow an approved kayak guide to kayker ratio. As a cruise operator, we hope to visit these areas for the duration of our permit in the summer months from July to October. We will comply with the Guidelines for
Seabird Colony Viewing for Cruise Ships set out by Environment Canada. As well we will comply with the Canadian Wildlife Service Guidelines for Visiting Seabird Colonies. We will comply with Federal whale-watching regulations while protected areas and we will comply with any recommendations given by HTO and community boards.

 Hi Brittany, I am returning the application to revise the answers to the Questionnaire. For some reason all answer were “no” or “nil” which I suspect were not your intended responses. Do not hesitate to contact me should run into any problem with the system or need any assistance. Thanks Goump

 Hello Goump, I have clicked the ones that I believe should be Yes. Let me know if there are any inconsistencies. We aren't camping, mining, conducting scientific research, creating corridors etc. Warm regards, Brittany
