The Nirjutiqarvik National Wildlife Area (NWA) is located 20 kilometres off the southern tip of Ellesmere Island and includes Coburg Island, Princess Charlotte Monument and all the nearby water within a 10 km radius.

The Nirjutiqarvik ACMC is drafting the Management Plan for the NWA and meets 1-2 times per year in Grise Fiord to discuss all issues pertaining to management of, and permitting for access to the Nirjutiqarvik NWA.
