Emergent coasts of Akimiski
Island, James Bay, Northwestern Territories, Canada: Geology, geomorphology, and vegetation.
The highest densities were north of Akimiski
Island and up the western side of James Bay, where many groups were found in shallow turbid water close to shore (Fig.
Several islands, including the crescent-shaped Akimiski
Island, are visible in the frozen bay.
From the 1700s until the mid-1940s, caribou migrated from wintering areas in the Hudson Bay Lowland Ecoregion and Boreal Shield Ecozone to summering areas as far east as Cape Henrietta Maria and Akimiski
Island (Lytwyn, 2002; Magoun et al., 2005).

Nesting ecology and gosling survival of Canada Geese on Akimiski
Although the James Bay islands remain part of Nunavut, the western James Bay Cree assert that the western James Bay islands, including Akimiski
Island, were part of the Cree traditional territory and that these islands have never been surrendered through treaty.

Nesting on Akimiski
Island and west and south of James Bay, these geese stick to the western edge of the Atlantic Flyway during migration.
interior geese on "Akimiski
Island will be described as a race new to science." On the other hand, genetic studies done over a broader geographic range indicate measurable divergences in genomes of putative subspecies of geese (e.g., Shields and Wilson, 1987; van Wagner and Baker, 1990).
But the nesting season wasn't great for this population in 2010, partly due to high predation by polar bears on Akimiski
After subsequent research, Faoro learned the adult Canada goose was one of roughly 1,000 adults and 2,000 to 3,000 juveniles banded annually on Akimiski
Island in western James Bay.
