The animals move around

NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Research biologists should pay more attention to what Inuit have to say about the migration of animals, Peter Kattuk, MLA for Hudson Bay, said in the legislature on Nov. 29.

For example, Kattuk said this fall, scientists tagged 10 seals with radio collars to track their movements in Nunavut.

“Apparently one was from the Arviat area, and went around Coral Harbour, and it’s now in Sanikiluaq,” Kattuk said.

“So, Inuit say wildlife moves around, and it should be a good example for biologists that the animals don’t stay in one area.”
