A National Wildlife Area is a conservation status for a geographical region in Canada that restricts most human activities on that region. However, land use permits may be issued "for activities that are compatible with conservation". Such areas are established and managed by the Canadian Wildlife Service, a division of Environment Canada. They may consist of land and water features, as well as coastal areas extending up to 12 nautical miles (22 km) from shore.
