Members of the Canadian Arctic Expedition (CAE) travelled in and around
vast areas of the western Arctic that are now protected as national or territorial
parks, or as bird sanctuaries or wildlife areas. Among the areas traversed
or studied by CAE members are:
Island Territorial Park, Ivvavik National Park,
Aulavik National Park,
Island Bird Sanctuary, Tuktut Nogait National Park,
Kitigaryuit National Historic Site, Bloody Falls
National Historic Site, and the Coppermine
River, a proposed Heritage River. Many expedition photographs
of these places are available in the CAE photo collections and
many specimen and artifacts brought back by the CAE come from
these now-protected areas.
This section provides a summary of the Expedition's
work in the major park areas, with examples of photographs taken
and specimens or artifacts collected there.
