It is a vast land-, sea-, and ice-scape of glaciers, wetlands, coastal, marine, and freshwater environments and an outstanding example of land-, sea-, and ice-use which is representative of Inuit culture and Inuit interaction with the Arctic environment as it becomes vulnerable under the impact of climate change.
