Its relatively pristine wilderness is managed cooperatively between Inuit and Parks Canada. "Land management practices based on indigenous and local knowledge, and community-based natural resource management systems, have been effective in avoiding and reversing land degradation in many regions. [...] Since local resource users are often the first to experience ecosystem changes and the impacts of land degradation, monitoring programmes and the design of restoration management plans can benefit from participatory approaches involving local ecosystem experts, including indigenous and local knowledge holders, working together with scientific experts."
