Caribou, including newborns, cross the Meliadine River July 13 from Qarmavinirtalik through Ijiralik during their annual migration through the Kivalliq region. Our contributor says there were likely more than 15,000 amirrait — migrating caribou — heading to cooler areas along the west coast of Hudson Bay near Rankin Inlet. According to range maps from the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board, the Qamanirjuaq calving grounds are just inland from Arviat, Rankin Inlet, Whale Cove and Chesterfield Inlet.
