One of the world's largest polar bear denning sites, Wapusk means "white bear" in the native Cree language. The park is a unique ecological zone bordering the arctic, hosting both tundra and coastal marine environments. This landscape provides habitat for over 250 species of birds as well as hyper-abundant snow geese colonies. Though wildlife seems to be growing, this evolution must be monitored. Parks Canada continues to watch over this landscape as it sits on the precarious border to the ever-changing Canadian north.
