Russian Arctic (Franz Josef Land) (National Park)
**Approximate boundaries, also missing area on nearby peninsula.
From National Geographic:
"[T]he Russian government has expanded the Russian Arctic (Russkaya Arktika) National Park to include Franz Josef Land, the world's northernmost chain of islands.
Made up of more than 190 islands, Franz Josef Land is a mostly uninhabited area that is encased in sea ice for much of the year. Yet the rocky, glaciated islands are home to stunning biodiversity. The newly expanded park will protect habitat for such species as the Atlantic walrus, bowhead whale, polar bear, narwhal, and white gull.
Russia's park expansion was signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev Friday and increases the size of the protected area by 28,500 square miles (7.4 million hectares). At 34,000 square miles (8.8 million hectares), the park is now the largest in Russia.
The park "will contribute to the integrated conservation of the pristine islands and marine ecosystems of the northeastern part of the Barents Sea," the Russian government said in a statement. This includes "glacial and periglacial landscapes of the polar deserts and ecosystems of offshore shallow water and sea ice, [home to endemic] Arctic fauna."
From Greenpeace website:
Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree that sets new boundaries of the National Park "Russian Arctic." According to this decree, in the national park "Russian Arctic" transferred land reserve "Franz Josef Land." However, not all the territory of the reserve came to the park boundary.
The very first decision point is not talking about the creation or expansion, and on the elimination of specially protected natural territory - the state nature reserve of federal importance "Franz Josef Land."
Previously, reserve protected habitats of the animals in the Barents Sea in the vast territory. There was banned exploration and mining, industrial fishing. After the liquidation of the reserve large areas of the sea - more than four million hectares - were not included in the national park "Russian Arctic" and deprived of any conservation status. So from this point on in the habitats of bowhead whale, narwhal, beluga can extract oil and marine aquatic resources on a commercial scale.

Russian Arctic National Park ( Russian : Национальный парк "Русская Арктика") is a national park of Russia , which was established in June 2009. It was expanded in 2016, and it covers a large and remote area of the Arctic Ocean , the northern part of Novaya Zemlya ( Severny Island ), and Franz Josef Land .
After expansion in 2016, approximately 74,000 km 2 , 16,000 km 2 in land area and 58,000 km 2 in sea area  were added to the National Park. In 2009 the total area of the national park was 14,260 km 2 , including 6,320 km 2 on the land and 7,940 km 2 of the Arctic Ocean. 
The area is the habitat of polar bears and bowhead whales . The area also includes one of the largest bird colonies in the Northern Hemisphere , as well as walrus and seal rookeries .  In addition to preserving natural habitats, the area of the national park is important for preserving the cultural heritage, which is related to the history of discovery and colonisation of the vast Arctic territories starting from the sixteenth century. 
The Russian government first established the Franz Joseph Land Conservation Area on 23 April 1994.  Plans for a national park covering northern Novaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land were launched in the 2000s. When Russian Arctic National Park was established on 15 June 2009, Franz Josef Land and Victoria Island were excluded.  Announcing the event, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin expressed his hopes that the National Park could help develop tourism in the area.  Putin visited the archipelago in 2010, describing it as a "giant rubbish tip".  By 2011 the national park had been expanded to also include Franz Josef Land in a move to better accommodate tourism in the archipelago.  Russia commenced a 1.5 billion ruble , three-year clean-up project starting in 2012 to remove more than 100,000 tonnes of waste which had accumulated during the Soviet era. These include a quarter million barrels of oil products, a million old barrels and dilapidated vehicles, radar installations and aircraft, among others.

The park is regarded as one of the most well-established protected areas for marine mammals in the nation. Existences of Bowhead  and Gray Whales in the area make the park's ecological value to be extraordinary.
