The Canadian arm of Royal Dutch Shell has donated about 860 000 ha of offshore exploratory permits in the waters of Baffin Bay, near Lancaster Sound to the not-for-profit Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), to support the establishment of a national marine conservation area off the coast of Nunavut.
The NCC had subsequently released the permits to the Canadian federal government, thereby facilitating a marine conservation initiative of global significance.
